Survival and Resilience of Two Village Communities in Coastal Orissa: A Comparison of Coping with Disasters

Abstract

The crucial element in a disaster is the human component. In this paper, this human factor is discussed with reference to a group’s vulnerability, which is a concomitant of certain important attributes such as the occupation/livelihood of a group. However, when a community or a group manages to survive disasters despite their vulnerabilities, it calls for a discussion on the various processes of resilience and coping that enabled their survival.
