DIFFERENT MODEL IN MEASURING THE RESILIENCE OF A COMMUNITY Some effort have been made in order to measure the level of resilience. Several model has been generated as a result. In this paper there are only three model that will be discussed. That are PEOPLE model, Cutters model and Torrens model. PEOPLES model PEOPLE model is a model which developed based on seven important aspects. Those aspects are population and demography, environment/ecosystem, organized government service, physical infrastructure, lifestyle and community competence, and economic development.

Strenght and weakness Compared to other models, this model is the simplest model but has covered various aspects of DRR. This simplicity make this model easy to apply and does not require time and resources as PEOPLE model. However, the variable measured is very broad and general.

One of the challange in implementing measurement model of resilient is considerate the local context. Every measurement should be put into local context. Failure to identify the context in applying measurement could result in irrelevant result and poor prediction (Food Security Information Network [FSIN],
