What is Resilience?
Resilience describes the capacity of communities to function, so that the people living and working in a community – particularly the poor and vulnerable – survive and thrive no matter what stresses or shocks they encounter.
“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
