RESILIENCE IS “THE ABILITY OF PEOPLE, HOUSEHOLDS, COMMUNITIES, COUNTRIES AND SYSTEMS TO MITIGATE, ADAPT TO AND RECOVER FROM SHOCKS AND STRESSES IN A MANNER THAT REDUCES CHRONIC VULNERABILITY AND FACILITATES INCLUSIVE GROWTH.” (USAID)

Posner Center is conducting a multi-session series on resilience in global development with workshops running from November 2019 through spring of 2020.  Throughout this series, we’ll explore resilience from different angles such as personal resilience, resilience to climate change, designing resilient programs, and using resilience for more impactful global development.

You can attend individual sessions or the full series.  Registration is open now for upcoming sessions and more sessions in 2020 will be announced soon.
