dc.description.abstractThe current “resilience gap” is how it can be enabled in reality from its apparent idealistic grounding? This chapter accepts that a first step should be the establishment of a suitable metric for resilience measurement. It then describes the theoretical construct for using Quality of Life Models and develops one particular model, namely the DASS42. It does this with 7 case studies that cover a decade of work in various post disaster situations. The case studies seek to highlight the operational contexts and issues encountered to reach this “reality” of enabling resilience; and the lessons learnt trying. • Banda Aceh, Indonesia in 2005 (Asian Tsunami 2004) • Manshera, Pakistan in 2005 (The Kashmir Earthquake 2005) • Sichuan, China in 2008 (The Sichuan or Wenchuan Earthquake 2008). • Port au Prince, Haiti in 2011 (The Haitian Earthquake 2010) • The Eastern Suburbs of Christchurch in 2011 (The Christchurch Earthquake 2011) • Tacloban, Philippines in 2013 (Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda 2013) • Informal settlements in Surabaya, Indonesia in 2008 and 2013 (no disaster as such).en_NZ
