Building more resilient livelihoods is increasingly being recognized as one of the most powerful means to mitigate – and prevent – food security crises. Since 2008, FAO has been at the forefront of efforts to measure the resilience capacity of people to food insecurity and the effectiveness of resilience-strengthening interventions. Within this framework, FAO has pioneered the development and the use of Resilience Index Measurement and Analysis (RIMA), an innovative and quantitative approach which identifies the main factors that contribute to household resilience in selected countries. It seeks to explain why and how some households cope with shocks and stressors better than others do. The first version of RIMA has been technically improved based on its application in ten countries. As a result, the new RIMA-II methodology provides better support for more effectively designing, delivering, monitoring and evaluating assistance to populations in need, based on what they need most.

The webinar provides an overview of the evolved RIMA-II, highlights the possible use of RIMA results and presents some of the analyses that have been conducted around the world.
