Systems Approach to community capacity building and resilience.

To address issues both here in the U.S., and in our international community within the diaspora a clear understanding of how to address issues within our communities must be understood by each of us as emergency management professionals.

A systems approach focuses on the linkages, interconnections and interrelationships between different parts of a system.  From simple system, to complex-complex systems with built-in feedback and controls designed within the system.  The urban system includes economics and livelihoods, politics and governance, society and culture, infrastructure and services, and finally space and settlements. These aspects of the urban context are all interconnected, dynamic and changing.
