Resilience: the Big Picture - Top Themes and Trends

Building resilience - the practice of ‘making people, communities and systems better prepared to withstand catastrophic events (both natural and manmade) and able to bounce back more quickly and emerge stronger from these shocks and stresses’ – increasingly features in international development discourse and practice. The topic cuts across sectors, scales and contexts, helping people prepare for, cope with and respond to a host of different shocks and stresses, from social, economic and cultural, to physical, environmental and political.

This learning brief synthesises lessons drawn from CARE’s Adaptation Learning Programme for Africa (ALP), which has been supporting vulnerable communities in sub-Saharan Africa to adapt to the impacts of climate change since 2010. It is based on evidence and practical experience in implementing community based adaptation (CBA), about gender dynamics and the ways in which CBA can increase adaptive capacity and promote gender equality.

Introductory guide to Gender and Climate Change

For years, civil society organisations and researchers have highlighted that, as weather patterns become increasingly unpredictable and extreme events such as floods, heatwaves or storms become more common, the way in which people are affected depends strongly on their position in society and, therefore, also on gender norms and expectations. The momentum for gender equality in climate change policy, research and practice has been growing.
