A safe and resilient community requires the optimal utilisation of resources, as well as active coordination and participation of all relevant stakeholders in the community. Determining optimum institutional structures will be key to successfully creating a resilient community. Institutional arrangements may range from formal to informal, with varying degrees of authority, accountability, and responsibility for coordination, handover, and delivery.
Institutional arrangements will ensure a community’s access to supporting resources, services and stakeholders to assist in the effective management of risks, thereby empowering a community to adequately prepare for any hazard and reduce conditions of vulnerability that threatens their resilience. Community stakeholders and structures must seamlessly participate with the relevant government and disaster management structures in establishing co-operative activities.
