The United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) defines resilience as, “The ability of a system, community or society exposed to hazards to resist, absorb, accommodate, adapt to, transform and recover from the effects of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner, including through the preservation and restoration of its essential basic structures and functions through risk management.” (UNISDR, 2017)
