Measuring resilience

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) defines resilience as “the ability of a social or ecological system to absorb disturbances while retaining the same basic structure and ways of functioning, the capacity of self-organisation, and the capacity to adapt to stress and change.” BRACC projects are working hard to strengthen people's and institutions' resilience and also to measure it, over time.

Why invest in resilience?

Policy brief
This policy brief from the BRACC Knowledge and Policy Hub and the Civil Society Network on Climate Change (CISONECC) argues that investing in resilience creates a triple dividend: avoided losses, development and co-benefits. 

BRACC Knowledge and Policy Hub

Project
The hub provides knowledge, policy and implementation support to the BRACC implementing partners, acting to ensure that the impact of the programme is greater than the sum of its parts.
