At Chemonics, we adhere to USAID’s definition of resilience, with its emphasis on the ability or capacity to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses. Since 1975, with our first agriculture interventions, we have refined methods for building capacity of individuals, households, communities, countries, and systems. In recent years, we have developed approaches that proactively help stakeholders reduce, mitigate, and manage risk and adapt to and recover from shocks and stresses in ways that reduce chronic vulnerability and facilitate inclusive growth. Resilience analysis and strategy is supported by all of our Practice Areas, each supporting a distinct technical portfolio with evidence-based analyses, learning events, and advisory services.
