‘Resilience in the SDGs: Developing an Indicator for Target 1.5 that is Fit for Purpose’ provides a proposal for an appropriate indicator for target 1.5 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): ‘By 2030 build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations, and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters’. Produced by the Overseas Development Institute, the paper outlines an approach for developing a cross-sectoral, multi-dimensional and dynamic understanding of resilience. It also acknowledges that shocks and stresses can reverse years of development gains and efforts to eradicate poverty by 2030. It highlights that development is multi-faceted and the achievement of many of the individual development goals is dependent on the accomplishment of other goals.
