FAO Capacity Development

Good Practices on Resilience

FAO defines resilience as "the ability to prevent disasters and crises as well as to anticipate, absorb, accommodate or recover from them in a timely, efficient and sustainable manner. This includes protecting, restoring and improving livelihoods systems in the face of threats that impact agriculture, nutrition, food security and food safety."

In order to contribute to building the resilience of agriculture-based livelihoods, FAO’s Strategic Programme on Resilience has adopted the good practices methodology. Resilience good practices have been documented as factsheets or booklets, and are being shared through the KORE - Knowledge Sharing Platform on Resilience.  Here are some examples for adoption in your countries:

Conflict and protracted crisis

Social protection

Food chain crisis

Natural hazards


Multiple themes (booklet of 11 good practices)
