Alibasic advised the Resilient Communities of America on climate resilience and went on to serve as co-chair for the energy sector of the White House Climate Preparedness and Resilience Task Force in 2014. Updated definitions of sustainability and resilience with an all-encompassing review of contemporary sustainability and resilience literature are included.
Chapter one defines terms related to sustainability and resilience, and how the topics impact local governments and communities.

To effectively manage coastal zones, and better equip them for climate resilience and preparedness, decision-makers depend on information with which they balance risk, benefit, and use.
The recommendations in this book are based on the author's years of direct experience in applied resilience and sustainability planning in Grand Rapids, Michigan and on his years of research on various aspects of sustainability and resilience from climate change, climate preparedness, triple bottom line impact, greenhouse gas emission strategies, climate adaptation and climate change mitigation to sustainable energy practices. Alibašic has written and published extensively on the topics of public administration, administrative evil, sustainability, climate resilience, economic development, and sustainable energy. It enables the readers to understand the external and internal dynamic of organizational commitment to sustainability and resilience, threats, opportunities and to evaluate them in the context of budgetary and financial circumstances surrounding the organization.
