An article in our June issue profiles a new VA hospital in New Orleans called Project Legacy. In addition to its LEED Silver certification, the hospital has implemented several strategies that make the building more resilient against floods like caused by Hurricane Katrina...or worse.
Indeed, sustainability and resilience are linked in many ways, but there are also a few ways they may be at odds (resource efficiency, as one example). For the July cover story of Building Operating Management, I'm working on a story on exactly this idea — where are sustainability complementary, and where may they not be? And if they're not, how do you evaluate the tradeoffs?
What's your take? Where have you seen green and resilience reinforce each other? Where have you seen them conflict?
In reply to Scott Yollis:
Completely agree with you, that sustainability and resilience are linked with each other. People in most of the area have a lack of water and other natural resources. Most of the rural area people are not aware about the water sanitation and hygiene. Thus to make them aware ONG shammesh organize the program where, such people are taught the moral values to make them aware about such things. You can learn more here about different programs arranged by the mission humanitiare.
