About

Launched in 2016, the RMEL Community of Practice is a growing network of 250+ resilience-focused measurement and research scientists; monitoring, evaluation, and learning specialists; and 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.

The RMEL CoP is a member-driven network, supported by a small secretariat, and a steering committee.
