Climate change increases the possibility of more droughts and stronger hurricanes more likely. This trend is one of several factors contributing to Maui’s wildfires. This workgroup would explore using a DAO as a post-natural disaster small business recovery engine. The DAO would serve as an SBIR/STTR Incubator for small businesses in climate-related disaster-prone areas. This would accelerate regional economic recovery, spur job growth, and support long-term community sustainment.

Workgroup Charter

Leverage digital assets to improve the economic resilience of US regions at risk of experiencing climate change-related disasters.

What will we deliver?

A practical implementation for a regional DAO that delivers regional economic value before an emergency enhances regional response and collaboration during a disaster and accelerates regional economic recovery after any regional emergency.

Why is this workgroup important?

A regional DAO can help improve first responder effectiveness during an emergency and accelerate post-disaster economic recovery by enhancing regional economic resilience.

What will we demonstrate?

We will design, build, and prototype regionally customized operations in collaborating regions across the United States.

When do we meet?

The Climate Change Disaster Response Workgroup meets on the 1st Thursday of every month at 3p E /12n P.
