GOAL, The Rand Corporation, University College London and The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, sponsored by Irish Aid, are hosting FROM CRISIS TO RESILIENCE, a webinar series that aims to spark interest and explore the emerging lessons and best practices for building resilience in the most challenging of environments - fragile and conflict affected contexts.
Learning and investing in resilience at various stages, and within critical socio-economic systems, is crucial to ensuring the preservation of gains in the well-being and development of people in the face of shocks, and to shift from humanitarian assistance towards long term resilient development.
This 90-minute webinar will allow you to learn key challenges and strategies to progress disaster resilience in fragile and conflict affected contexts. Based on years of experience and lessons learned from the field in the Middle East and Latin America, GOAL, HHI, UNDRR and Irish Aid. Panelists will answer the following questions:
-What are the main challenges to progress disaster resilience in fragile and conflict affected contexts?
-Is resilience a remedy for fragility?
-Can a systems approach be used to enhance resilience through disaster risk reduction programmes in fragile and conflict affected contexts?
This webinar is free and open to all.
