This report aims to identify the key pillars of resilience and related contributing factors at the household level using the FAO Resilience Index Measurement and Analysis (RIMA-II) methodology.
This report aims to identify the key pillars of resilience and related contributing factors at the household level using the FAO Resilience Index Measurement and Analysis (RIMA-II) methodology. The pillars of resilience considered in this analysis are Access to Basic Services (ABS), Assets (AST), Social Safety Nets (SSN) and Adaptive Capacity (AC), based on consultations with ONS and other local experts, literature review and previous analyses (FAO, 2016c).
The second part of RIMA-II explores the role of shocks in explaining resilience capacity and describes the association between factors that contribute to resilience and food security. The final aim is to compare the findings of the resilience analysis with some of the key policies put in place or programmed by the Government of Mauritania, with a specific focus on the regions analysed here. This analysis can therefore be used to critically review policies that affect resilience, which have already been implemented or are set to be implemented.
