Insights into Community Urban Resilience Experiences

This report presents the findings of Resilient Sydney – Insights into Community Urban Resilience Experiences, a research project that examined community resilience to shock events in Greater Metropolitan Sydney. This study used the System Effects methodology, as well as focus groups, to identify the impacts, barriers and enablers experienced by residents and emergency and non-emergency service providers in relation to 2013 Blue Mountains bushfires, the 2016 East Coast Low in the Northern Beaches, the 2016/17 heatwave in Penrith, and the 2014 Martin Place Siege.

A collaboration between Resilient Sydney and the Sydney Environment Institute.
