Perspectives on Resilience and Sustainability

The Environment & Sustainability Workgroup is delighted to host a panel discussion which will explore various views on resilience and how resilience links to sustainability. Resilience is a concept and approach that has gained ground in development circles recently but has deep roots in other areas. Panelists will discuss organizational approaches to resilience (USAID), the relationship between rights (both property and procedural) and resilience, and the psychological aspects of individual and community resilience. Finally we will talk about how well these viewpoints are integrated in development efforts, and how development organizations and practitioners might move forward.

Please note that registration for this event will close at 4:00 PM on Wednesday, February 21st.
