Resilience is the ability of a person, household or community to offer resistance to, adapt to or recover from a crisis. Disasters, health crises and crisis measures hit people with a low socio-economic status the hardest, worsening inequality. Through spatial organization and social systems with characteristics like diversity, self-organization, openness, trust, leadership and social networks, we can improve the resilience of communities and society as a whole.
Generally, the consequences of crises, such as drought, floods, extreme temperatures and pandemics, are studied in isolation from each other, despite the significant likelihood of a domino effect happening. A better approach calls for interdisciplinary preparation, especially for vulnerable groups.
