Developing a Workplan

The Blueprint for Building Resilience

Your team will determine where to focus your efforts, what you expect to do, and the type of results you hope to achieve.

Using the information gathered on your community — its strengths, resources, weaknesses and threats — the next step is to begin building the plan to achieve your goals.

The foundation of your workplan should include:

  • Key focus areas for strengthening resilience
  • The priorities of your initiative, based on the potential to improve resilience and the feasibility of implementation
  • The responsibilities of all coalition members in supporting the plan
  • Expected duration of each activity
  • Tracking of implementation and completion
  • Outcome measurements

Presenting Your Workplan to the Community

Once you have a workplan draft in place, your next step is to get feedback and buy-in from stakeholders and the community. Two of the more effective options are to plan and promote an event to reveal and review the plan, or to present directly to local government council members.
