ResilienceLinks Relaunches with Updated Strategy and Branding
This post was written by the ResilienceLinks.org team.
Shocks and stressors including climate change, chronic poverty and disease outbreaks drive communities into crisis year after year. While shocks and stressors are inevitable, the lingering aftermath they often cause is not. Resilient individuals and communities are better able to achieve development goals, maintain development outcomes and thrive.
Building resilience requires robust knowledge management and sharing to ensure that best practices can be reproduced at scale and in the contexts of different countries and crises. Effective and efficient knowledge sharing among the NGO community, implementing partners, research organizations, mission staff and USAID headquarters is necessary to achieve and maintain resilience. In short, resilience requires a collaborative approach.
ResilienceLinks is a collaborative learning space that empowers humanitarian and development professionals to incorporate resilience into their work. By facilitating knowledge sharing among our audience and partners, the ResilienceLinks team hopes to provide practitioners with the tools to proactively manage risks and adapt to stressors, leading to a more resilient world.
At ResilienceLinks, we pride ourselves on our inclusive approach to knowledge sharing and management. The site shares cross-sectoral resources, including those focused on economic resilience, social and cultural cohesion, climate sustainability and strengthened governance. In addition to fostering collaboration by sharing cross-sectoral content, we also work to disperse overly specific jargon to make our content understandable and accessible.
This summer, ResilienceLinks launched an updated brand and redesigned and reorganized our site to aid user accessibility in the hopes of growing our audience and expanding access to resilience resources. Today, ResilienceLinks aims to raise awareness of the importance of resilience, create a common lexicon within the development and humanitarian communities and empower practitioners to include resilience practices in their work.
We rely on our community to help us continue to expand our array of resources. If you or your organization are interested in contributing to ResilienceLinks and helping us create a more resilient world, please view our Content Submission Form or email us at [email protected].
