Abstract

The concepts of vulnerability and resilience have drawn much attention from hazards managers and researchers, including intensive scrutiny of their meaning and scope. Some consider them to be separate issues while others view them as interrelated. Even the tasks of reducing vulnerability and enhancing resilience have been described as opposite sides of the same coin. Either way, most agree that identifying areas of vulnerability is simply not enough --we need to use that information to make meaningful changes that will improve the situation for future events.
