Since the beginning of the 21st century, as changes in the global environment and social structures have increased the threat of natural disasters, the significance of resilience has been attracting global attention. Tracing the global-scale changes from the 1990s reveals why resilience is needed now and what hope it represents. To improve resilience, it is important to clarify the causes and mechanisms that may lower resilience, and to design specific measures to halt their progression.
