From Vulnerability to Resilience Look inside

  • Synopsis
    From Vulnerability to Resilience – V2R – is a framework for analysis and action to reduce vulnerability and strengthen the resilience of individuals, households and communities. The framework sets out the key factors that contribute to peoples’ vulnerability, namely, exposure to hazards and stresses, fragile livelihoods, future uncertainty and weak governance. It provides detailed explanations of the linkages between those factors, as well as ideas for action to strengthen resilience. The framework was developed to address the need to work in a more integrated way to tackle the causes and consequences of vulnerability. The book is intended to provide guidance to the reader, rather than to dictate a set way of doing things. The material can also be adapted to suit communication to other audiences such as community-based organizations. The issues and principles highlighted in this book are of relevance to a wide audience including practitioners (NGOs and local government staff), researchers, and policy makers working in the fi elds of livelihoods, disaster management and climate change adaptation.

    It is rare to find a book so accessible that combines theory and practice. The V2R offers a succinct yet usable framework that can be applied by a range of development actors at every level from local to national and even international.’ Nick Hall, Disaster Risk Reduction Adviser, Plan International ‘This is a very impressive and admirable piece of work. By balancing the various elements of livelihoods, vulnerability, governance, hazards, uncertainty, resilience, it fills a big gap. V2R makes resilience seem more manageable.’ Dr John Twigg, Senior Research Associate, Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, University College London
