This study seeks to analyze market responses and public policy in the face of disaster vulnerability and resilience. This article outlines the conceptual status of disaster and vulnerability, distinguishes between risk and vulnerability, and points out the top ten disaster paradoxes, which are barriers to resilience. This article shows that a sustainable economic, social and environmental development model is at the heart of disaster and vulnerability analysis. Market and policy responses must consider both the resource deficit and the adaptive capacity of disaster survivors and the characteristics of the environment in which they live to create opportunities for resilience.
