A measurement of community seismic resilience in sub-city districts of Mashhad, Iran
Communities that are more resilient to seismic hazards are often able to retain their functions in a time of crisis and experience faster recovery. This study develops a holistic approach for
Community resilience factors to disaster in Saudi Arabia: The case of Makkah Province
Purpose: Saudi Arabia has recently experienced a number of natural disasters, including floods, epidemics and dust storms. Preparing a community to overcome disasters enhances its capacity to
Comprehensive Review of Community Seismic Resilience: Concept, Frameworks, and Case Studies
Seismic resilience is a concept to evaluate the postearthquake functionality of structures that significantly play a critical role in postearthquake rescue and recovery. Indeed, the community is made
Understanding the causes of vulnerabilities for enhancing social-physical resilience: lessons from the Wenchuan earthquake
ABSTRACT In an effort to understand the social-physical vulnerabilities from the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, this research established and validated a conceptual model for natural disaster analysis.
Delphi-based consensus study into a framework of community resilience to disaster
Disasters cannot be prevented but their impacts can be mitigated through adapted disaster management strategies. Several studies confirm that community resilience is a significant factor in disaster
Towards Urban Sustainability Via Disaster Resilience Assessment: A New Approach Towards Constructing Seismic Resilience Metrics
This study presents a hybrid factor analysis and analytic network process (F’ANP) model, not only for constructing new disaster resilience indicators in the context of an earthquake hazard, but also to propose a new network process for calculating the weights of extracted dimensions and indicators of seismic resilience.
Coastal community resilience frameworks for disaster risk management
Extreme weather events due to climate change and growing economic and development activities along coastlines have resulted in increased risks from natural and human-induced disasters—affecting the
Measuring Urban Resilience to Natural Hazards
Natural disaster is an undeniable fact, and preparing to cope with and respond to it is an essential necessity. A resilient city can survive after a traumatic blow to its physical infrastructure, its


Earthquake hazards and community resilience in Baluchistan
Resilience is widely used from a variety of research perspectives; however, community resilience in particular is applied to a number of natural hazards and disasters-related studies, programs, and
Measuring Improvements in the Disaster Resilience of Communities
Resilience measures that relate expected losses in future disasters to a community's seismic performance objectives are proposed and demonstrated in a case study of the Memphis, Tennessee, water delivery system.
Resilience to natural hazards: a geographic perspective
Resilience is increasingly used as an approach for understanding the dynamics of natural disaster systems. This article presents the origin of resilience and provides an overview of its development
The concept of resilience revisited.
The concept of resilience is reviewed in terms of definitional issues, the role of vulnerability in resilience discourse and its meaning, and the differences between vulnerability and resilience.
Social vulnerability and seismic risk perception. Case study: the historic center of the Bucharest Municipality/Romania
Social vulnerability is as much a part of risk as building damage, hazard magnitude, and economic loss. Social vulnerability refers to the capacity of a human community exposed during the impact of a
Disaster Resilience Indicators for Benchmarking Baseline Conditions
There is considerable federal interest in disaster resilience as a mechanism for mitigating the impacts to local communities, yet the identification of metrics and standards for measuring resilience
Vulnerability and the Erosion of Seismic Culture in Mountainous Central Asia
Abstract Vulnerability to earthquake disasters in mountainous regions frequently escapes investigation and analysis. The tragic and costly earthquake disasters that have recently occurred in Central
Reducing hazard vulnerability: towards a common approach between disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation.
Key communalities and differences between the climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction communities are examined, and three exercises that would help to structure a multi-community dialogue and learning process are proposed.
