Reducing the Impact of Disasters Through Education
State Information


EDEN develops resources to support and enhance Extension’s efforts to reduce the impact of disasters. EDEN's communications and networking infrastructure supports these resources, but the resources rely heavily on EDEN delegates, committees and individual volunteers for content. Each resource represents an opportunity for engagement and service to Extension through EDEN.


Topic Pages

EDEN creates Topic Pages as one means of providing information that will help Extension educators respond to an event, assist with their community’s recovery from an event, or build an educational program to reduce their state’s vulnerability to disaster.


eXtension CoP


EDEN provides structure and support for the Disaster Issues CoP. eXtension provides a platform for EDEN delegates and others to deliver educational information directly to the public.


Response Notes


Response Notes is EDEN's system for helping our Extension family "touch base" or "phone home" when disaster strikes. It's a quick-capture form you can use to let EDEN (and our USDA liaisons) know whether you've been affected, to ask for help "from the family", and to share news about what you're doing to recover or to help your constituents or neighboring states.


State Reports


Each year, in preparation for its annual meeting, EDEN asks the member institutions to prepare summaries of their disaster activities. EDEN is particularly interested in hearing about how members utilize EDEN resources.


EDEN Courses

EDEN has developed learning opportunities (courses and course-delivery materials) on select topics, partnering with agencies and/or by providing support to member institutions.


Catalog of Extension Resources


EDEN's resource catalog contains structured information about disaster-related educational resources produced by its Extension members, EDEN-partner agencies, and EDEN itself. The catalog is searchable and public, but resources designated for sharing within the network are included in search results only when the user is logged in. Each member institution enters information about its resources.


National Preparedness Month

The Cooperative Extension Service, through EDEN, is a partner in DHS's National Preparedness Month campaign. For this campaign, EDEN provides key resources that allow member institutions to share preparedness information efficiently and effectively.


Non-Extension Websites

This resource is a collection of inks to websites of federal agencies and national organizations active in disasters.


Delegate Intranet (Additional Resources)

EDEN delegates (representatives of their member institutiions) have access to private workspaces and additional resources, including organizational work products and items provided for sharing only within the network. Entry to the Intranet requires authentication.
