I have been part of the FSIN Technical Working Group on Resilience Measurement. This group has been very effective in bringing together technical people from a number of agencies and research institutions to work on harmonising measurement principles and analytical frameworks. There is also a resilience task force that is now being created by TOPS, a programme created by the Food for Peace Office of USAID. I will lead this task force.
One concern I have is it is uncertain whether the FSIN TWG on resilience measurement will continue. There has been on-going discussion with several organizations but no one has come forward with the resources. I think this is critical that it continues. The work on harmonization of measurement approaches is not complete and unless this work continues, there will be multiple approaches that are not comparable.
