Community Resilience Services

Helping people thrive now and for generations to come.

When communities have the resources and strategy they need to thrive, they are more resilient to disruptions, whether in the form of extreme weather events, cyber threats or an economic crisis. 

BDO works with communities around the globe to help them make policy decisions and strategic investments based on sustainable and equitable models. With the help of our experienced professionals, communities can strengthen their ability to respond to, withstand, and recover from environmental, social and economic challenges.  

BDO’s Community Resilience practice views resilience through a holistic lens. The focus is delivering a lasting return on investment and generational equity to help ensure communities become safer and more sustainable amid increasing disruptions. Our multi-disciplinary approach addresses the key drivers for resilience, helping community leaders with everything from strategy to financing to risk mitigation and beyond. 

With historic levels of government investments in social services, infrastructure and the environment, the opportunity for communities to secure the resources they need has never been greater. By supporting a judicious approach to allocating community resources, BDO helps people thrive now and for generations to come. 

Backed by 35 years of experience in disaster recovery, community development, government services and more, BDO's Community Resilience team both supports our clients’ investments in their communities and equips those they serve with the resources they need to thrive.
