Resilience Measurement Principles – Toward an Agenda for Measurement Design
FSIN Technical Series No.1
The Food Security Information Network (FSIN)* supports the development and harmonization of methods and tools for food and nutrition security analysis. A technical working group composed of renowned experts was constituted to lead the development of a common analytical framework and technical guidelines for resilience measurement.
This paper is an initial step toward the development of resilience measurement design for use by stakeholders (e.g. programme staff, monitoring and evaluation, policy makers). It outlines:
- A definition of resilience
- A series of measurement design principles
- General technical guidelines for Resilience Measurement commonly used to promote rigor in all measurement approaches
- A set of substantive issues and analytical concerns
