| Collaboration and Innovation Between Sectors
Many jurisdictions have developed public/private partnerships to reach a level of preparedness and response capability not possible using only the resources of the public sector. Over 60% of all response and recovery resources come from the private and community sectors in the form of volunteerism, materials, insurance, personal savings, contributions and non-profit donations. The partnerships that are being developed between governments and organizations at all levels can be examples for others to follow in their own communities. Clicking on Public/Private Partnerships displays abstracts of examples reported by the media, or clicking on Public/Private Index displays a list of links that will display the description and the source material.
