  • There is sorely a need to engage multi-sector stakeholders (e.g., local community, government, private sector) in collaboratively facilitating the resilience of our built environment. However, different stakeholders could make different decisions on disaster resilience; such differences are deeply rooted in the different value systems of the stakeholders. Stakeholder value systems are defined as a ranked system of things that are of importance and utilities to the stakeholders. There is a need to integrate the value systems of multi-sector stakeholders with resilience decision making to support stakeholder collaboration. To address the need, this paper focuses on understanding and analyzing the value systems of different stakeholders for disaster resilience in residential buildings. The disaster resilience concepts were identified from domain literatures and systematic interactions (i.e., interviews, survey) with stakeholders. Both responsible stakeholders and impacted stakeholders were involved in the study. The results show that there is a significant difference in the stakeholders' perspectives on the priority of disaster resilience. This research could improve stakeholder-centered decision-making to support more resilient built environment.
