In November 2016, USAID commissioned The Mitchell Group, Inc. (TMG), to conduct an academic literature review on the state-of-the-art in resilience enhancement and to relate those findings to the interventions of RISE partners, taking into consideration the particularities of the Sahel context. This review constitutes one phase of the midterm performance assessment of the Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced (RISE) initiative underway in Burkina Faso and Niger. The RISE initiative aims to improve the resilience of households and communities in vulnerable areas of Burkina Faso and Niger. The purpose of Phase I of the assessment is to draw attention to the key findings and current trends in the academic literature related to resilience enhancement.
