Paths to a Resilient Future: What does the evidence tell us? What do we still need to learn?

Save-the-date! November 13-15, Jung Hotel, New Orleans, U.S.A.

The Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Community of Practice (CoP), in conjunction with members and partners, is pleased to announce the RMEL Conference 2018.

The purpose of the RMEL Conference 2018 is to accelerate the resilience-building progress through improved measurement, analytical strategies and learning, bringing forward evidence about what works for enhancing the resilience of people and systems in differing contexts. The conference will highlight state-of-the-art advancements in resilience measurement, analysis and learning. Proceedings of this conference will be published through a variety of online and print fora.

The conference will convene: resilience measurement and research specialists; resilience monitoring, evaluation and learning practitioners; and resilience technical advisors, programmers and influencers. Drawing on the findings, experience and expertise of specialists from diverse sectors, disciplines and geographies, the conference will offer a forward-looking agenda for advancements and innovations in resilience measurement, evaluation and learning, and identify critical themes for research and knowledge development for resilience.

The RMEL Conference 2018 will take place on November 13-14, 2018, and will be followed by an RMEL CoP convening and skills-building day on November 15. This day is open to all interested conference participants, and RMEL CoP members are strongly encouraged to engage. The day will provide opportunities to: join member-led interactive activities to map existing evidence and knowledge about what works for strengthening resilience; provide or access technical support and mentoring for RMEL; and develop a forward-looking agenda for the RMEL field. Further details about this day will be announced shortly.
