Sustainability, vulnerability and resilience are now key words for emergency managers. Disaster plans must incorporate the philosophy of sustainable development. Increasingly communities are being encouraged to find ways to build their resilience, rather than 'waiting for help to arrive'. The degree to which a community is considered resilient is often spoken about in terms of its 'vulnerability'. Through the use of case study examples, this subject explores the concepts of sustainability, vulnerability and resilience in the context of both western and developing countries.
