Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Aug 12, 2017 | Feinstein International Center, Elizabeth Stites, Kristin Bushby

Disaster resilience is the ability of countries, communities and households to manage change by maintaining or transforming living standards in the face of shocks or stresses, without compromising their long-term prospects. Most people survive conflict and crisis, not through international interventions, but by relying on their own efforts, adaptations, networks, and systems.  In this Working Paper by the Feinstein International Center, Elizabeth Stites and Kristin Bushby discuss conceptual trends since 2012 reflecting how stakeholders view livelihoods; examine selected livelihood strategies of conflict-affected populations; and review the nature, type, and scope of interventions by humanitarian agencies and organizations.
