Resilience has been defined as. "[T]he capacity of a system to absorb disturbance and reorganize while undergoing change so as to still retain essentially the same function, structure, identity, and feedbacks." [1]

Scientific uses of resilience derive from at least three initially separate fields, which at best provide complementary perspectives: ecology, human development, and disaster management [2] All three are relevant to theory and practice of community resilience.
