2016 Resiliency – The Commitment to Community – Connecting the Dots
The Commitment to Community
Technically, resiliency is “the ability of a system and its component parts to anticipate, absorb, accommodate, or recover from the effects of a hazardous event in a timely and efficient manner, including through ensuring the preservation, restoration, or improvement of its essential basic structures and functions.” Source
Less formally, “The ability to deal with change and continue to develop.” Or “Resilience is the capacity of a system to continually change and adapt yet remain within critical thresholds.” Source
Thinking About It
“Social Problems” ( yes, those are air quotes )

“Be prepared before a disaster strikes your community or small business. As part of a series of focus groups and meetings with consumers and small business owners, the Kansas City Fed has developed an array of materials to help you be prepared before and after a disaster.
