How resilient is your coastal community? A guide for evaluating coastal community resilience to tsunamis and other hazards

Source(s):  United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

This Coastal Community Resilience (CCR) Guide was developed, on the basis of lessons learned and experience gained in the Indian Ocean region after the 2004 tsunami, to address coastal hazards and reduce risk to vulnerable communities. The framework described in this CCR guide was developed in partnership with institutions throughout the Indian Ocean region, and is already beginning to guide development along Asian coasts most in need of building resilience. This guide attempts to broaden the perspective of sector plans so that a more holistic and robust planning framework evolves to truly elevate the potential for community resilience. The results of the CCR assessment process outlined in this guide can fit easily into and enhance development plans for any given coastal area, and can thereby complement traditional planning processes used by local and national governments.
