  • Synopsis
    Toward Resilience is an introductory resource for development and humanitarian practitioners working with populations at risk of disasters and other impacts of climate change. It is aimed at program management, advisory and technical staff of development and humanitarian organizations, and seeks to strengthen staff understanding of the basic approaches and principals that can be applied to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation initiatives. It also provides practical guidance on how to integrate disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into the program cycle and adapt activities to a range of contexts and development and humanitarian sectors.This guide includes examples from practitioners’ experiences that illustrate good practice and learning, and suggests tools and resources that practitioners find useful. This book is a core resource developed as part of the Emergency Capacity Building (ECB) project. The ECB Project is a collaborative effort comprised of six agencies: CARE International, Catholic Relief Services, Mercy Corps, Oxfam, Save the Children and World Vision International.

    'This guide is an easy-to-use resource that provides guidance for NGO staff and partners alike to tackle the issues of disasters and climate change. Not only does it provide 10 common sense principles for integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in practice, it highlights the needs of vulnerable populations including children, so that they can be part of the process of building disaster and climate resilience.”Dr Nick Hall Head of DRR and CCA, Save the Children

    'For vulnerable communities in the Pacific that are already experiencing the profound impacts of disasters and climate change, this guide is a fantastic resource. Not only does it recognize the importance of involving local people to build on their existing strengths to prepare for disasters and adapt to climate change, it provides practical guidance for identifying high-risk groups (including children, young people, women, older people, and those with disabilities) and how to work with them effectively. Congratulations on a great resource.' Maria Tiimon, Pacific Outreach Officer, Pacific Calling Partnership, Edmund Rice Centre

    'While others still find it difficult to climb out of their silos and blink in the sunlight, the civil society organisations and INGOs that use these rigorously produced ‘good enough’ guidelines will come much, much closer to providing a fully integrated approach to disaster risk, climate change and livelihood enhancement. Once again ECB has produced a winner!' Dr Ben Wisner, Aon Benfield UCL Hazard Research Centre, University College London
