Community resilience

Ch.3: Understanding Social Recovery reportThis chapter discusses CERA’s Community Resilience Programme which led and coordinated the psychosocial system of services and supports across a number of partner agencies. The programme enabled communities to continue to lead their own recovery and promoted effective community engagement. This chapter outlines these activities. The key lessons discussed will help you strategize and implement similar activities in your recovery context.

The continuing aftershocks throughout 2011 and 2012 disrupted people’s recovery as they continually responded to new seismic events.
