Options for including community resilience in the post-2015 development goals

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Lindsey Jones, Aditya Bahadur

This paper outlines the case for including resilience in the post-2015 development goals and explores the characteristics of a resilient community. It takes stock of existing proposals for including resilience in the post-2015 framework, and makes recommendations for practical options for targets and indicators based on three scenarios: Embedding resilience in a poverty goal; mainstreaming resilience in other sectoral goals; and a standalone goal on resilience. Finally, areas for further consideration in ensuring that resilience is taken up within the post-2015 consultation process are outlined.
