Supporting resilience in difficult places: a critical look at applying the 'resilience' concept in countries where crises are the norm

This paper looks at how resilience is being taken forward in the international aid sector, and then at how best a donor can support resilience-building. It argues that resilience is not only 'a combination of DRR and sustainable development' but rather the ability of the international community to respond earlier and more effectively to crises (of whatever kind), making emergency preparedness (and not merely DRR) an ingredient in resilience-building. It looks at the challenges of supporting resilience in situations where it is necessary to think longer-term, but where the stability and strong governance which are considered necessary for traditional models of ‘development’ are absent.
