TL;DR: The concept of resilience is reviewed in terms of definitional issues, the role of vulnerability in resilience discourse and its meaning, and the differences between vulnerability and resilience.
Abstract: The intimate connections between disaster recovery by and the resilience of affected communities have become common features of disaster risk reduction programmes since the adoption of The Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015. Increasing attention is now paid to the capacity of disaster-affected communities to 'bounce back' or to recover with little or no external assistance following a disaster. This highlights the need for a change in the disaster risk reduction work culture, with stronger emphasis being put on resilience rather than just need or vulnerability. However, varied conceptualisations of resilience pose new philosophical challenges. Yet achieving a consensus on the concept remains a test for disaster research and scholarship. This paper reviews the concept in terms of definitional issues, the role of vulnerability in resilience discourse and its meaning, and the differences between vulnerability and resilience. It concludes with some of the more immediately apparent implications of resilience thinking for the way we view and prepare for disasters.

TL;DR: An improvement to conceptual clarity would foster much-needed communication between the natural hazards and the climate change communities and, more importantly, offers greater potential in application, especially when attempting to move away from disaster recovery to hazard prediction, disaster prevention, and preparedness.

Abstract: Despite the ubiquity of disaster and the increasing toll in human lives and financial costs, much research and policy remain focused on physical infrastructure–centered approaches to such events. Governmental organizations such as the Department of Homeland Security, United States Federal Emergency Management Agency, United States Agency for International Development, and United Kingdom’s Department for International Development continue to spend heavily on hardening levees, raising existing homes, and repairing damaged facilities despite evidence that social, not physical, infrastructure drives resilience. This article highlights the critical role of social capital and networks in disaster survival and recovery and lays out recent literature and evidence on the topic. We look at definitions of social capital, measurement and proxies, types of social capital, and mechanisms and application. The article concludes with concrete policy recommendations for disaster managers, government decision makers, and no...

TL;DR: Resilience function captures the effect of the disaster, but also the results of response and recovery, the effects of restoration and preparedness, and becomes an important tool in the decision process for both the policy makers and the engineering professionals.

TL;DR: In this article, a method and system for securely managing the storage and retrieval of data is proposed, which may include receiving a first disaster recovery code and acquiring a first password corresponding to the first code.
Abstract: Aspects of the invention provide a method and system for securely managing the storage and retrieval of data Securely managing the storage and retrieval of data may include receiving a first disaster recovery code and acquiring a first password corresponding to the first disaster recovery code A first disaster recovery key may be generated based on the first disaster recovery code and the first password Another aspect of the invention may also include generating the received first disaster recovery code based on said first password and the first disaster recovery key The generated disaster recovery code may be securely stored on at least a portion of a storage device or a removable media Data stored on the storage device may be encrypted using the first generated disaster recovery key Additionally, data read from the storage device may be decrypted using the generated first disaster recovery key
