Abstract
An unexpected result from a study of the Quality of Life (QoL) of 85 households in kampong Tunjungan, an informal settlement located in the CBD of Surabaya, Indonesia was the apparent existence of a resilience "tipping" point. The existence of such point be significant in the resource allocation and program prioritising. Moreover, further review and reflection of the data suggested a linear resilience up to that tipping point and then creation of additional community resilience a non linear relationship beyond. Thus, there was an apparent convergence of individual and community resilience whereby "whole was more than the sum of the individuals". This paper sets out to put the proposition. Certainly, further research is required but the notion of such a convergence and the possibility of a tipping point are intriguing.
