This report is the executive summary and recommendations of a research project that aimed to address the following question: What factors increase or hinder long-term individual and community disaster resilience? This predominantly qualitative research into long-term disaster resilience documents the experiences and wisdom of 56 disaster survivors nine years after the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires through to earlier fires and floods in Victoria back to a 1943 Tarrawingee fire, and including the 1983 Ash Wednesday fires.
