This series of cases explores central questions for practitioners interested in conducting a risk and resilience assessment:

• Under what conditions are risk and resilience assessments most effective and why?
• What assessment components yield the most impactful findings and capacity strengthening opportunities?
• How can we ensure teams are able to apply findings after the assessment?

Each case explores various contexts where Mercy Corps conducted a risk and resilience assessment, the Strategic Resilience Assessment (STRESS), in Niger, Nepal and Uganda. The cases document lessons learned and recommendations for humanitarian and development practitioners considering conducting a risk and resilience assessment.
