About Societal Resilience
Social resilience is the ability of a society to adjust its functioning and sustain operations before, during and after disasters.
In actual times, climate change and evolving global assets are changing the nature of hazards and their predictability.
Societies and all individuals are demanded to be able to rapidly respond to growing natural and man-made disasters.
The actual strategies of disaster management are to a large extent focused on the efforts of public authorities to protect citizens from harm underestimating the powerful contribution that citizens’ improvised response constitutes in emergency response.
