Urban resilience measurement

Source(s):  Mercy Corps
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

This curriculum on urban resilience measurement was developed by Mercy Corps for the Asian Resilience Monitoring and Evaluation Experiential Learning Event, designed for USAID missions and implementing partners across Asia. The objective of the learning event was to ensure that key stakeholders receive training on advanced resilience measurement practices in rural and urban environments, by providing a hands-on learning opportunity to assess resilience capacities, develop resilience indices and indicators, and apply these through a program monitoring and evaluation framework. The learning event was delivered in two complementary modules: Module 1 covered resilience in rural contexts where food and livelihood security are of primary concern and Module 2 focused on urban resilience within South and Southeast Asia. This curriculum supported Module 2.

The curriculum, accompanied by case studies, is designed to be delivered over a 5-day training period and covers the following sessions:

  • Session 1: Conceptualizing urban resilience 
  • Session 2: Conceptualizing urban resilience measurement 
  • Session 3: Urban resilience program design 
  • Session 4: Gathering data for urban resilience program design 
  • Session 5: Analysis and strategy for urban resilience program design 
  • Session 6: Resilience measurement methods 
  • Session 7: Developing a monitoring and evaluation plan for urban resilience
