Resilience and Transformational Change: The case study of Jaguariba, a Brazilian Community

Isabelle E Amorim

Can resilience contribute to factors that transform isolated individuals into a powerful integrated group, combine their forces, and defend their common interests? This paper examines the displacement of the inhabitants of Jaguaribara, (Northeast of Brazil) and their resettlement due to construction of the dam “Castanhao”. While a new city was planned by the Government to shelter the inhabitants from “Old Jaguaribara” that was overflow by the dam, the case yields consequences that arising out with the resettlement of the community, elucidating besides the impoverishment risks the protective factors that came up during the process of resistance against the construction of the dam, in the light of the concept of Resilience.
