From Measuring Resilience to Advancing Resilience Practice

This event is part of the Gobeshona Conference, Research into Action on Locally-Led Adaptation.


This event is part of the Gobeshona Conference, Research into Action on Locally-Led Adaptation. The event will take place on January 18th, 16:00-17:30 UTC and will comprise two short panels:

  • Advancing resilience measurement in the 2020’s will offer perspectives on what Resilience Measurement has achieved over the past decade, and the opportunities for the next generation of resilience measurement to further support ‘research into action’.
  • Reflections on how research and measurement can shape action will offer insights from coalition members on what key decision-makers (communities, cities, local governments, national policy-makers, private sector) need and want from resilience measurement to better guide locally-led adaptation.

To join the event you will need to register for the Gobeshona ConferenceResearch into Action on Locally-Led Adaptation. A few days before the event, you will receive zoom links for the conference.
