It is increasingly suggested that societies must be resilient to be safe and sustainable. While there are many approaches to resilience available, not all of them operationalize the concept to the extent of guiding what to look for when observing actual communities. This is a requisite for linking the conceptual and the actual, and vital for our ability to develop societal resilience. Drawing on research in two coastal communities in Fiji, the purpose of this paper is to present one way of operationalizing resilience that makes that link and accentuates culture as an explicit contributor to resilience.
