ABSTRACT

While vulnerability is based on insecure conditions that build up hazards creating disasters and interact with each other, resilience is based on resources that work as a countermeasure against disasters. Resilience emerges after a disaster, but vulnerability emerges before a disaster. Disaster probability is high in communities with a high level of vulnerability. Reducing the level of vulnerability tends to increase the capability of flexible reaction and recovery probability. What differentiates this study from previous studies is the integration of disaster vulnerability and resilience which used to be discussed separately. Based on a conceptual integration of vulnerability and resilience, this study assessed the level of disaster vulnerability status in Korea focusing on human, economic, social and institutional capital at both individual and group level and suggested a strategy to improve resilience.
