The community self assessing resilience tool
The Community Self Assessing Resilience process helps communities to assess their resilience and to share their experience and knowledge with others.
SwedBio is part of the initiative ‘Resilient Communities’, a working group within the Agricultural Biodiversity Community network, which is the outcome of a partnership with the Oxfam Novib – Hivos Knowledge Programme*.
Different actors has come together in this working group to co-create the Communities Self Assessing Resilience process, which is inclusive, empowering, easy to use and applicable in many different agricultural biodiversity contexts. Such a process helps communities to a) identify and monitor sources and status of resilience in their communities for themselves, and b) in some contexts, to communicate development programming preferences to external actors.
Please check out the website to see examples of completed and on-going field trials, and to download relevant resources for assessing resilience with a self-led approach. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to learn more about the process, of if you would like to use and document your own process!
