Author(s): Ibrahim, Maggie
Number of pages: 12 p.

This concise report boils down how World Vision UK sees resilience. It provides a salient case study from Somalia and pulls out recommendations for supporting resilience along a project cycle.

This document is part of a series of five addressing the changing risks and weak governance systems people are facing, and presents World Vision UK's way of doing development programming in order to promote resilience. On the occasion of the disaster risk reduction day, they intend to bring attention to this transformation agenda – resilience programming for empowerment and equity of the people we serve – including children, men, women and people with disabilities. These five key publications were developed based on World Vision UK's experience working with people in high risk locations to share with colleagues, academics and donors in order to move the resilience in practice debate forward.
