Civil Resilience Network: Conceptual Framework for Israel's Local and National Resilience

Israel Trauma Coalition for Response and Preparedness, Reut Institute, August 2009

This document offers a conceptual framework for boosting Israel's local and national resilience. It calls for consolidating a Civil Resilience Network comprising thousands of units (nodes) that have embraced a culture of preparedness and thus have basic core capacities to respond to a crisis effectively, independently and collaboratively. The objective of the resilience network is to make a decisive contribution to Israel's successful response to national crises, when a majority of the population in many areas is exposed to severe danger and shortages. The Civil Resilience Network can be consolidated quickly and at very low costs. Most of its components already exist and most of the required resources are readily available within its potential units. Furthermore, this resilience network should yield many other benefits to Israeli society by strengthening local communities, improving response to local challenges and crises, enhancing social cohesion and thus contributing to quality of life.
