We asked our contributors what they see for resilience in 2018:
I firmly believe Resilience must equally cover organisational, community and personal aspects. These 3 “pillars” are so interrelated that one cannot even exist without the other two.
UN-Habitat and 100 Resilient Cities are good examples of groups working to create resilient communities. Associations, virtual groups and organisations like ISO help in making organisations more resilient by the sharing of expertise and standards. Many fields in the world of psychology help understand personal resilience and even cure some of the related problems. Resilience can succeed only if all parts of the scope are covered.
Today, Resilience does not integrate entirely these 3 aspects. I sincerely hope 2018 will see a broadened acceptance of the complete scope of Resilience, including all organisational, community and personal aspects.
