A Common Analytical Model for Resilience Measurement
This paper published by the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) proposes a common analytical model that comprises six components upon which resilience measurement may be based. It also:
- defines resilience capacity as a multi-dimensional, multi-level mediator of shocks and stressors;
- identifies the points at which data should be collected;
- highlights the need to collect data on initial states, shocks, subsequent (post-shock) states and contextual influences;
- proposes how to construct resilience capacity measures using ten categories of indicators;
- outlines the importance of using multiple (quantitative and qualitative) methods and both objective and subjective indicators; and
- describes estimation models that might be used to assess the impact of resilience.
The next outputs of the TWG will be short papers which contain guidance in targeted areas of resilience measurement.
