RAND researchers developed an initial prototype tool that focuses on risk-informed, capabilities-based planning to determine (and address gaps in) capabilities and resources a locality will likely require in the event of a disaster, with the prototype focusing on earthquakes, hurricanes, and pandemic influenza.
