Community resilience can be defined as having the ability to cope with hardships and displaying flexible responses to daily life pressures which can vaccinate us against all types of tensions and stresses of life.
A resilient individual can stand strong in the face of social difficulties by utilizing his own biological- psychological balance. Enhancing this resilience can lead to huge progress in one’s self care and psychological skills. On the other hand, the resilience of urban communities forms the main foundation of societies’ solidarity in the face of crises and unexpected incidences.
