Networking to improve community resiliency in disaster planning and response
by Victoria Jennison
International Journal of Public Policy (IJPP), Vol. 3, No. 5/6, 2008

Abstract: This paper discusses the application of networking as a global governance tool to improve community resiliency in preparedness-oriented disaster response. The perspective presented here challenges the trend of humanitarian aid allocation to affected individuals after disaster. Preemptive strengthening of community resiliency via local, government and international network development may do far more to mitigate disaster impact and aid sustainable recovery for people and communities than any amount of donated monies or supplies.
