This is the ability of a system, group, or civilization exposed to risks to resist, absorb, accommodate, and recover from the consequences of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner, particularly by preserving and restoring its key basic structures and functions.

The ability to “resile from” or “spring back from” a shock is referred to as resilience. The degree to which a community has the required resources and is capable of organizing itself both before and during times of need determines its resilience in the face of potential hazard events.
