From good idea to good practice – options to make resilience work


This paper outlines the key findings from Phase 1 of the work on Risk and Resilience, and outlines the priorities set for Phase 2:

1. Ensuring that resilience and risk are properly integrated into the post-2015 processes

2. Simple guidelines for country teams on how to “do” resilience

3. Piloting a joint risk assessment in the field, including further work on measuring resilience

4. Embedding resilience into donor processes, including the potential role of markers

5. Further research on:

  • extensive risk – including cost-benefit analysis, impact analysis and the impact of extensive risk on growth
  • Involving private sector at local level
  • Risk transfer and risk financing options, including donor funding options
  • Governance of risk – which risks should be owned by which layers of society?
  • Transferring lessons from OECD countries, private sector (including business continuity planning) and the military
