This paper presents the EU's action plan for developing resilience, which outlines the steps to be undertaken for delivering early results and supports collecting best practice on effective support to help populations in need, giving priority to vulnerable countries that face recurrent crises and that are risk-prone. The paper highlights three priorities included in the action plan: (1) Supporting the development and implementation of national resilience capacities; (2) Promoting innovation, learning and advocacy; (3) Improving methodologies and tools.

It highlights examples of ECHO projects contributing to resilience in West Africa, Mali, Somalia, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Tajikistan, Nepal and Haiti.
