Resilience capacity is a crucial facet of development - and can be measured across sectors, beyond the indicators of wealth and agricultural productivity. Resilience can be effectively measured by assessing a variety of admissions, including social capital, women's empowerment, governance, markets, and systems. How does the inter-sectoral nature of resilience translate into the work done by NGOs during program implementation? How do we effectively measure social factors that influence resilience? 

Join the Wilson Center and CARE for a disucssion on the importance of measuring resilience across and beyond sectors and an exploration of the latest research, methods, and tools used to measure resilience capacity today.
