Natural hazards such as floods are one of the most damaging phenomena that require more attention. Villages exposed to flooding, such as Zoshk, should be more stable in order to minimize possible flood risks and damages. One of the pivotal strategies currently under consideration for mitigating flood damages is enhancing the resilience of communities, a focus that has been thoroughly assessed in this research. The research method is descriptive-analytical "survey" and the statistical population is 728 households living in Zoshk village. According to the number of 728 households in Zoshk villages, the sample size was estimated to be 102, using Cochran's formula, therefore the number of 102 questionnaires were prepared in the form of a 5-point Likert scale. questionnaires, the overall resilience of the Data analysis was carried out using Excel and SPSS software. To determine the level of normality of the data, skewness and kurtosis tests were used, and to answer the research hypothesis, one-sample t-test was used. The results of the research showed that the resilience of Zoshk village is average according to the opinion of the majority of the residents of the region and in between, the infrastructural, institutional and organizational dimensions, and economic, varies from the average and the amount of these dimensions are less than the average, means they are in an unfavorable situation.
