Resilience learning

Learn to drive enhanced resilience to natural and man-made disasters

In an increasingly volatile world, where climate change, conflict, and poor governance undermine progress toward achieving significant development outcomes, donors and implementing agencies are strategically focusing on resilience. The UK government’s Humanitarian Policy, Saving lives, preventing suffering and building resilience, puts resilience at the centre of their approach to addressing disasters.

A focus on resilience demands that different strands of work come together, to complement and amplify one another. The Resilience Learning Group (RLG) embodies these principles by bringing together agencies, academics and companies to share experiences and generate learning about what good resilience work looks like. The RLG is committed to being open (multi-disciplinary), a safe space for learning (and sharing failures) and practical.

The group’s focus areas are around complexity, organisational change and measuring resilience.
