University of Massachusetts Boston

The Center for Rebuilding Sustainable Communities after Disasters is the only institution of its kind dedicated to raising awareness and harnessing the expertise necessary for long-term sustainable reconstruction. CRSCAD truly encompasses the multidisciplinary approach to sustainability and disaster relief.
We accomplish our mission, in part, by:
- Engaging in multidisciplinary, transdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research activities
- Assisting local, national and international agencies as well as the victims of disasters to develop practical, sustainable and long-term solutions to the social, economic and environmental consequences of disasters
- Providing expert advice and training to communities which have been devastated by disasters
