This session will introduce and cover a new process guide developed by the Stockholm Resilience Center’s GRAID program. Wayfinder is a process guide for resilience assessment, planning and action in social-ecological systems.
Gender norms and power dynamics can play significant roles in influencing the ability of people, households, and communities to build resilience capacities and put them into practice in the face of a shock or stress.
In 2014, TANGO launched the first of two Recurrent Monitoring Surveys (RMSs) with the USAID funded Pastoralist Areas Resilience Improvement and Market Expansion (PRIME) project in Ethiopia. The RMS collects real-time data during or shortly after a shock to understand how that shock affects households’ well-being and their responses or coping strategies, and what can help them recover.
Over the last five years, Mercy Corps has led an agency-wide initiative to operationalize a resilience approach to its development and humanitarian work. As part of this initiative, Mercy Corps developed the Strategic Resilience Assessment (STRESS), a methodology to help development practitioners apply resilience thinking to strategy and program design. Mercy Corps designed the STRESS process to help practitioners understand how complex systems and interconnected drivers of instability threaten progress toward development outcomes.
In collaboration with Zilient.org, the Resilience MEL CoP organized a two-part webinar series based on the CoP’s Innovation Awards that focus on urban resilience measurement. The first webinar discussed how communities in the Slum Dwellers International (SDI) network are working with cities and international climate and resilience experts to bring Know Your City (KYC) slum dweller-generated data into urban resilience planning processes.
