Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning in Practice: Organizational Approaches

We seek to advance the innovative development, and widespread use, of robust RMEL methods and tools, and to share credible evidence and knowledge about what works for enhancing resilience over time.

Many organizations and partnership platforms have been developing RMEL systems, in which a conceptual framework for resilience shapes strategy and investments, and tools for measuring, monitoring, evaluating and learning are applied to help validate and adapt resilience interventions. These efforts also contribute to learning, technical and advocacy reports, helping to advance resilience in action.

Some of these RMEL systems and associated materials are profiled below, and are outlined in more detail in the developing RMEL in Practice Inventory. Contact us if you would like to include your organization’s RMEL system.
