Social Resiliency
Social resiliency refers to the capacity of societies to cope with many kinds of challenges that impact well-being and is an essential characteristic of what we call ‘successful societies’ – namely, societies that provide members with the resources needed to live healthy, secure and fulfilling lives. Ensuring equitable and inclusive access to necessary resources prior to, during, and after disruptive events is key to social resiliency. Social institutions such as community groups, religious organizations, schools, and service providers play important roles in the social fabric of communities and should work together to coordinate efforts to advance community sustainability.
