Abstract

There is a shared need to measure a community's resilience to disaster from planning and preparedness to response, recovery and reflection of `lessons learnt'. To this end, the Australian Government Attorney General's office funded the development of the Torrens Scorecard (Arbon et al., 2012) which consists of a participatory method enabling community stakeholders to undertake their own assessment of their community's resilience. In 2013, the Torrens Scorecard was evaluated by five small communities across the Sunshine Coast. Our findings indicate that Torrens toolkit, and other popular measurement tools like the Disaster Resilience Indicators (Cutter et al., 2010) are not appropriately applied across scales and are therefore, not representative of the broader system of community disaster resilience (Singh-Peterson et al., 2013a, 2014).
