How communities and countries build resilience will be dependent upon their capacity to anticipate, plan and take action to respond to a wide range of risks. This is particularly the case for least developed countries. GRP works with communities, civil society and national governments to help ensure their long-term capacity and institutions are built for transformative change. To do so we harness the best expertise, experience and evidence on resilience and accelerate learning across institutions, practitioners and geographies.
