This chapter discusses how socio-cultural capacities and capabilities, the strengths, attributes, and resources (e.g., coping abilities, knowledge, relationships, leadership etc.) collectively available from community, societal and organizational sources (UNISDR, 2015), influence people’s disaster experience and outcomes. This process starts by identifying capacities and capabilities, their characteristics, and their distribution within a population.
