Welcome to The Spark, the ICF Blog

Jul 24, 2017 2 MIN. READ

ICF recently launched a new blog, The Spark, where we’ll feature thought leadership and insights from our community of experts. We're glad you're here.

You might have noticed that the ICF site looks a little different these days.

Over the past few months, we’ve been making some changes to the way we share insights about the industries that matter to us — and to you. We wanted to create a distinct space on the ICF site where readers could expect more in the way of feature articles, trend forecasting, commentary, and more. Whether you’re managing digital transformation, paving the way for better cybersecurity protocols, or conducting survey research to improve health outcomes, we’ll seek to address the issues that impact your world.

Contrary to popular belief, the scale of a disaster isn’t the only factor that determines how communities should think about recovery. Countless variables—from funding resources to environmental issues to public messaging—can impact a community’s ability to recover in an efficient and comprehensive way. In short, no matter how many disasters your community has encountered, the rules of the recovery landscape are always changing. As a result, it can be difficult to simply identify all of the factors in play, much less discern how they all interlock. Even seasoned local and state recovery teams struggle to combat the evolving onslaught of regulatory, natural, and financial challenges that accompany a disaster.

That’s why it’s crucial to work with a partner that understands the interconnected web of recovery components in an effort to emerge more resilient and solvent than before. With that in mind, we’ve outlined some common mistakes and challenges faced by local disaster recovery teams.
