EU resilience compendium: saving lives and livelihoods

The European Commission (DG ECHO – Humanitarian aid and civil protection) publication showcases examples of successful resilience projects, i.e. 27 examples of existing best practices from around the world. 

The key aim of this publication is to foster learning and a better understanding of how resilience can lead to more effective humanitarian assistance and transformational change for the most vulnerable. Each example presented in the Compendium demonstrates that successful and cost-effective methods and approaches exist, and they can reduce vulnerability and build resilience of populations. 
 

This compendium illustrates how the resilience approach is being translated into reality by the EU, by governments, other donors, agencies, civil society organisations (CSOs) and vulnerable communities. Projects and programmes are presented from a variety of sectors, at different levels, with differing partners and a large spectrum of different contexts. Each demonstrates that successful and cost effective methods and approaches do exist, or can be developed, to address vulnerability and build resilience. They serve as a stimulus for further understanding and more widespread application of resilience-based action.
