Collaboration and Collective Impact

Collaborating and a collective impact approach help strengthen resilience activities and outcomes.

There is an urgent need to increase collaboration on resilience measurement and learning, and translate the growing body of evidence on resilience into action. Data sharing is fundamental, but we need to act now on using resilience evidence to inform government investment decision making, as well as policy and program design.

Rather than waiting for evidence to be perfect before we take action, a "good enough" approach is needed to close the gap between the growing body of evidence on resilience and programming aimed at strengthening resilience. Being more systematic and timely in translating measurement into policies and programs, learning what investments have the greatest impact, and generating data and analysis would all improve resilience programming. Our collaborative efforts to link learning with collective impact must reflect the urgency of building resilience.
