Improving Resilience in Food Insecure Communities: Lessons from Implementers
April 25, 2012
The TOPS program sponsored a panel discussion drawing upon lessons learned by international NGOs working with communities to build resilience to drought and other shocks. Presentations included:
- From Conflict to Coping: Evidence from Southern Ethiopia on the contributions of peacebuilding to drought resilience among pastoralist groups by Jon Kurtz, Mercy Corps
- The Role of Diversification in Improving Resilience by Kristi Ladd, ACDI/VOCA
- If it's a Safety Net, is it Resilient? by Mara Russell, Land O'Lakes
Brief presentations were followed by Q&A and a round-table discussion on how best to set and measure resilience targets.
