Strengthening Resilience around the World.

Fact Sheet | July 31, 2018

This fact sheet addresses the significance of resilience in measuring the effectiveness and steering the goals of partner government planning agencies. Chemonics applies a resilience analysis and strategy, supported by its eleven Practice Areas, in the fulfillment of its work.

Once broadly defined and loosely measured, the concept of resilience now shapes the development strategies of USAID, DFID, the World Bank, and an increasing number of partner government planning agencies. Resilience thinking provides the basis for a more coherent response to global crises. USAID defines resilience as the ability or capacity to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses. Chemonics enacts a resilience analysis and strategy supported by its eleven Practice Areas, each supporting a distinct technical portfolio with evidence-based analyses, learning events, and advisory services.
