This second edition of the Characteristics draws on the feedback from the field testing. The basic framework is unchanged but there is much more practical guidance on methods of applying and adapting the resource, with examples and case studies. Characteristics of a Disaster-Resilient Community is a guidance note for government and civil society organizations working on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) initiatives at community level in partnership with vulnerable communities. It shows what a ‘disaster-resilient community’ might consist of, by setting out the many different elements of resilience. It also provides some ideas about how to progress towards resilience.
