As part of our external outreach, the Resilience Policy Drafting Team is hosting a consultation with Interaction on Wednesday, January 11th from 10:00AM-11:30AM EST on the new draft of the USAID Resilience Policy. This will be a virtual event and all who are interested should register here by Monday, January 9th.
In 2012, USAID released its first policy on resilience – Building Resilience to Recurrent Crisis: USAID Policy and Program Guidance. This policy has guided USAID’s work on resilience programming for the past decade. There have been significant changes in the global context since 2012, as well as new evidence on effective resilience programming practices. At this pivotal moment, the revised Resilience Policy highlights the need for a resilience approach that addresses the increasing number and types of shocks and stresses that are affecting people, communities, and countries. Most notably, the revised Resilience Policy articulates the need for resilience not only in areas of recurrent crises, but globally, as no country is immune to shocks and stresses, such as, extreme weather, pandemics, and price shocks.
