Community Resilience

Disaster resilience is "the ability of individuals, communities, organisations, or countries exposed to disasters and crises and underlying vulnerabilities to: anticipate, reduce the impact of, cope with, and recover from the effects of adversity without compromising their long-term prospects." (IFRC)

The Wingecarribee Shire has experienced a series of unprecedented shocks including record-breaking drought and heat, the Black Summer bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
To assist community in their journey to resilience we have provided a number of tools, information and resources.
