Abstract

It is clear that natural disasters, particularly floods, fires, storms and earthquakes, reveal a range of inequities, human suffering and economic and political costs, some of which are persistent across generations. The interdisciplinary research introduced in this paper explores some of these aspects in relation to flooding within two vastly different communities: Bangladesh and Australia. The main focus of the paper is on the building of community resilience and we argue that this aspect of disaster management is best served by an interdisciplinary approach.
