Resilience Scan

October 2014 to September 2017

As the 'resilience revolution' in international development continues, researchers at ODI are capturing the new directions and reviewing the latest thinking in this field through the Rockefeller Foundation-supported Resilience Scan initiative. With a focus on developing countries, we present quarterly analytical reviews of resilience literature, social media activity, and key resilience-related events, as well as collating the views of diverse resilience experts. Complementing this wide-ranging scan, are a number ‘deep-dive’ analytical papers on key emerging resilience-related topics.
