Disaster resilience is the ability of individuals, communities, organizations, and states to adapt to and recover from hazards, shocks, or stresses without compromising long-term prospects for development. According to the Hyogo Framework for Action, disaster resilience is determined by the degree to which individuals, communities, and public and private organizations can organize themselves to learn from past disasters and reduce their risks to future ones, at international, regional, national, and local levels.
