Description
 
Communities have faced a variety of crises in recent decades, including more frequent and severe natural disasters. As applied to disasters, resilience entails the ability of a community to rebound following a hurricane, earthquake, or other disturbance. Given the importance of resilience in promoting an effective recovery, the factors that contribute to community resilience are of great interest in many fields. Recent work has examined, for ex., socioeconomic indicators that contribute to greater social vulnerability and organizational structures that contribute to a more effective recovery. This literature review examines how the built environment contributes to greater resilience by supporting and encouraging strong social networks. It examines evidence linking strong social networks, a varied and integrated built environment, and greater resilience. Figure. This is a print on demand report.
