Making the Most of Resilience
MetadataShow full item record
resilience is becoming a hot topic. the increasing interest it is attracting in the development community offers an opportunity for designing and implementing more effective forms of intervention. specifi cally, a variety of actors are proposing resilience as a framework for fostering deeper integration between humanitarian and longer-term development interventions. however, putting it into practice is not necessarily an easy task and many challenges lie ahead. in this briefi ng we explore how policy makers can make the most of resilience. this includes: defi ning the concept to make it more relevant to a wider range of development practitioners; building on the concept’s strengths but also recognising its weaknesses; addressing these weaknesses by complementing resilience with other relevant concepts.
