Resilience scan 2014

This ‘resilience scan’ summarises the developments during 2014 in thinking and practice in the field of resilience, framed by a set of summaries focused on: 1. Insights from renowned resilience experts; 2. A review of academic literature from 2014; 3. Recommended blogs and twitter feeds; 4. A calendar of key resilience events.

The resilience revolution that has spread through international development policy and practice continues apace. The concept has been able to draw together actions and people working across a wide range of sectors and contexts. Much of the emerging literature is focusing on testing and refining operational approaches to resilience, although challenges remain in turning some trickier resilience concepts, such as interdependent systems and complexity, into practice. A major component of the operational challenge is the need for measurement of resilience inputs, processes and outcomes, and this is reflected in the growing range of frameworks and metrics available. The main critiques of resilience centre on its general failure to engage with power and politics in resilience building processes and outcomes.
