Resilience building handbook

Source(s):  VSO

From the heart of Tanzania to the mountains of Ethiopia to the borders of Bangladesh and Nepal; VSO’s resilience programming is rapidly increasing. Volunteers, staff and partners have all played such a key role in this and already there is a positive impact on the children and adults involved. This Resilience Building handbook captures examples of good practice from fifteen countries in both development and humanitarian contexts. It also highlights practical steps to demonstrate how straightforward it can be to reduce risks and vulnerabilities, and increase the coping mechanisms within communities. There are specific examples for health, education, livelihoods and protection along with some of the key international resilience approaches and frameworks. It is hoped this book will inspire and promote more avenues to enhance community resilience, and that individuals and communities become more knowledgeable, adaptable and confident in what to do when faced with shocks and stresses.
