I.       Overview

  • Resilience agenda within USAID was prompted by repeat large-scale humanitarian crises, and the increasing costs associated:

    • Cost in lives and livelihoods

    • Costs to affected countries in lost or stalled economic growth

    • Costs to governments and donors participating in humanitarian responses

  • Need to be able to quantify the costs – in lost economic growth and repeat, large-scale humanitarian responses - averted by resilience programming.

    • VFM analysis is starting to paint a compelling picture

  • Need to be daring and innovative in seeking ways to collaborate on this critical analysis

    • Be thoughtful and pragmatic

    • VFM can help inform the case being made for reduced spending, reduced liability and reduced humanitarian need
