Linkages between Vulnerability and Resilience

Linkages between Vulnerability and Resilience


Vulnerability and resilience are well known and often discussed concepts in disaster research. Depending on the disciplinary, methodological, or philosophical perspective, these two concepts have very distinct and contested meanings and research traditions as previous chapters have illustrated. Building on those contributions, this chapter takes a broader view of the evolution of hazard vulnerability and resilience concepts and their application to public policy and practice at local, national, and global scales.
