    摘要: The presentation addresses ways in which existing sub-national economic models can be made more flexible to address short- and longer-run information needs in the aftermath of unexpected events such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados or severe flooding.  In the short-run, there is an urgent need to provide an assessment of the damages – both to productive systems and infrastructure – to public agencies charged with responsibility for coordinating federal, state and local responses.  In the longer-run, there is a need to provide guidelines on possible alternative re-development paths based on generally accepted criteria about the optimal deployment of critical resources.  In addition to concerns about “disaggregating” the time paths, there is an equally important spatial consideration: how can appropriate levels of information be provided at critical spatial scales (state, community, neighborhoods) in a timely manner so that there is a consistent space-time recovery strategy?  The presentation draws on research conducted in REAL over the past 20 years on the assessment of floods, earthquakes and hurricanes.
