Disaster managers embrace the concept of community resilience, sometimes as a strategy and sometimes as a vision. Community resilience both requires and supports effective disaster management. To promote community resilience and to improve its application in disaster medicine, this chapter explores the concept, then describes principles for building community resilience and currently available resources and programs, and finally offers recommendations for future research.
