WHAT is Community Resilience?

  • According to the WV’s Community of Practice, Community Resilience is the capacity of a community to
  • Absorb stress or destructive forces through resistance or adaptation
  • Manage or maintain basic functions and structures during shocks or disasters
  • Recover after a shock or disaster
  • World Vision seeks to achieve community resilience, placing it as one of six work objectives.  This objective specifically sets out to assist communities in offsetting risks, mitigating against shocks, and decreasing vulnerabilities and injustice that they and their children face.
