International Code Council Releases New Resilience Alliance

ICC is working with ANCR members, including Target Corporation, the International City/County Management Association, Kaiser Permanente and the National Institute of Building Sciences

The International Code Council (ICC) announced the release of the new Alliance for National & Community Resilience (ANCR).

ANCR officially launched at ICC’s 2016 Annual Conference in Kansas City, Mo. Along with two founding partners, the Community & Regional Resilience Institute (CARRI) and the U.S. Resiliency Council (USRC), ICC is working with ANCR members from around the globe including Target Corporation, the International City/County Management Association, Kaiser Permanente, and the National Institute of Building Sciences to create the nation’s first Whole Community Resilience Benchmark.

“For a community to be resilient, it must understand the resilience of each community function and how those functions respond to adverse events,” says ICC Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “Cities, businesses, and households need support to be able to effectively adapt to increasing environmental, health, economic, and social hazards, and their need to become more resilient could not be greater or more pervasive.”

The launch already is generating a great deal of interest from both the private and public sectors, with Target affirming its commitment by donating $20,000 to the nascent organization on Day One. ANCR plans to host two national workshops in 2017 to develop the benchmark and plans to pilot it in communities across the U.S. in 2018.
