Measuring disaster resilience in communities and households: Pragmatic tools developed in Australia

Source(s):  Emerald Group Publishing Limited (Emerald)

This paper discusses the development of two toolkits designed to help communities and households measure their level of disaster resilience and provide them with practical tools to increase and maintain these levels.

The communities and the study project teams concluded that the user-friendly Scorecard is a workable tool for people to assess their household and community disaster resilience and to come together to plan what might further strengthen resilience. Critical to the Scorecards’ success was an understanding of the purpose of the assessment tool and the meaning of resilience.
