Resiliency and Communities

About This Collection

Community resiliency is the capability of a community to use available resources to respond to, withstand and recover from adaverse situtions. As Dr. Judith Rodin points out, "...that we as a global community have been spending billions in a paradigm that is predicated on disaster recovery and repair rather than one that is based on readiness, preparedness and prevention."  Resiliency is a quality of sustainability.
