ABSTRACT

PrepTalks: Social Capital in Disaster Mitigation and Recovery [video]   [open html - 42KB]

"In this PrepTalk, Dr. Daniel Aldrich explains how social ties are the critical aspect of resilience in immediate survival, in mental health, and in community recovery. Despite common assumptions that money, governance, level of damage, and inequality are the most important determinants of recovery, Aldrich demonstrates that 'disaster resilience comes from internal factors: How connected are we? How much trust do we have in each other? How often do we work together?' Aldrich has studied disasters around the world and is the author of four published books, including Building Resilience: Social Capital in Post-Disaster Recovery."
