Launched in 2016, the Community of Practice is a growing network of 200+ resilience measurement and research scientists; resilience monitoring, evaluation, and learning specialists; and resilience technical advisors, programmers, and influencers from around the world.
Together we aim to:
- create a more cohesive field of diverse actors who are collaborating to improve resilience measurement concepts, approaches, and methods and to increase capacities to use them
- strengthen evidence of what works to increase the ability of individuals, communities, and systems to be more resilient
- influence decision-making and sustainable development practice, policy, and investments across diverse sectors and geographies.
