Title: Resilience - the Danish Version

Safe from natural hazards such as earthquakes and volcanoes and populated with mostly nice and peaceful people, Denmark is often seen as what Danes would call “the melted butter in the center of the sweet porridge”. However, the concept of resilience has also found its way to this tiny Scandinavian country in recent years. Denmark is now building more resilient cities to cope with climate change, the Danish national crisis management system has been transformed into an all-hazards resilient approach relying on flexible response from cross-sectorial coordinating bodies, and volunteer organizations play an increasingly important role in emergency management and pre-hospital health services in Denmark.
