KORE - Knowledge Sharing Platform on Resilience

Resilience Evaluation Analysis and Learning (REAL) Short Course in Resilience Measurement

27/06/2018 - 27/06/2018 Session 3: 10:00-11:00 am EDT
Measuring Shocks, Stresses, and Resilience Capacities & Analyzing Resilience

In April the REAL Award launched the USAID Resilience Measurement Practical Guidance Note Series, a set of five guidance notes that provide pragmatic guidance to assist practitioners in integrating core aspects of resilience measurement into their programs and activities.

In this short course, join USAID for three interactive webinar sessions where you will learn how to apply the guidance in your work. Register for one, two, or all of them and mark the three last Wednesdays in June at 10am EDT in your calendars!

It is strongly recommended to read the Guidance Notes before attending the webinar series. Download them via this link (scroll down to Guidance Documents)

  • How can I plan and design a risk and resilience assessment? 
  • What resources will be necessary in order to perform a risk and resilience assessment?
  • What exactly is it that we collect data on when assessing risks and resilience in communities and households?
