The webinar will explore the outcomes of a recent Advancing Resilience Measurement consultation co-convened by the University of Arizona, USAID and the Global Resilience Partnership. The discussion will focus on four subthemes: demand-driven resilience measurement, psychosocial resilience measurement, measuring the resilience of systems and a resilience approach to measuring climate adaptation.
This webinar will be recorded, and the recording will be distributed following the event.
