This is called an "all of society" approach, which means citizens, governments, communities, critical infrastructure operators, non-governmental organizations and volunteers are working together to diminish risks and reduce the time it takes to recover.
As climate change increases the frequency and severity of weather-driven emergencies, it's critical we plan and prepare collectively. Only then will we be more resilient.
Individuals must be responsible for their personal readiness. This starts with learning about disaster risks then taking steps to increase household, neighbourhood and community preparedness.
