Disaster Resilience Capacities

A paper presented to the Australia and New Zealand Disaster Management Conference in May 2014 on the development of four disaster resilience capacities: wellbeing, knowledge, security and connection.

Aim of the paper: This paper suggests a number of disaster resilience capacities and the factors that contribute to them. These broad capacities have at their core an understanding of the impacts of emergencies. Through this broader understanding, risk reduction or mitigation actions can be identified. 
 
These capacities will then act as foundational concepts for Red Cross’ resource development, education development, advocacy work, and for targeting our assessment and engagement work.
