Pandemic-Resilient Community Planning: 'Practical Ways to Help Communities Prepare for, Respond to, and Recover from Pandemics and Other Economic, Social and Environmental Shocks' [September 28, 2021]
Victoria Transport Policy Institute
Litman, Todd
From the Abstract: "'Resilience' refers to a system's ability to respond to changes, including sudden shocks. This report investigates ways that communities can become more resilient to pandemics and other disasters. It compares COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] with other health risks, examines various problems caused by the pandemic, and recommends ways that communities can better prepare for, respond to, and recover from the pandemics. Pandemic-resilient planning requires policies that minimize contagion risks, provide basic access and delivery services during periods of restricted mobility, support physical and mental health during lockdowns, and provide affordable mobility for households with reduced incomes. To minimize contagion risk, planners should help operators and travelers ensure appropriate distancing, sanitizing and hygiene practices. Walking and bicycling are generally the safest and most affordable modes, improve physical and mental health, and help reduce social isolation, so improving walking and bicycling conditions tends to increase resilience."
