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.
