Document Highlights

Building Resilience: Cooperation and Coordination for an Effective Response is one of a series of reports that discuss effective governance in relation to national security and public safety incidents. This report focuses specifically on the principle of cooperation and coordination, and identifies opportunities for action that organizations can take when responding to such incidents. Recently, countries, including Canada and the United States, have faced numerous national security and public safety incidents that required the coordination and cooperation of multiple levels of government, first responders, private organizations and volunteer organizations. In some of the case studies examined, these different organizations were well coordinated during the response and recovery of major incidents. But in many other organizations, there was room for improvement and lessons to be learned. Without a high degree of cooperation and coordination, responses to significant incidents will likely be less effective, more costly, and more time consuming.
