The path to resilience: more haste, less speed

Source(s):  Griffith University

In GriffithREVIEW edition 35 - Surviving:

Using as an example the 4 May 2007 tornado that levelling 95 per cent of the town of Greensburg, Kansas, and killing eleven of its fourteen hundred residents, this essay addresses the balance between the need to reflect and learn from catastrophe and the desire to start over and rebuild as quickly as possible. The author argues that disasters can provide the opportunity for something more resilient to grow when communities come together to re-make themselves in environmentally sustainable ways.
