Resilience Evaluation, Analysis and Learning (REAL) Award
Lessons for building resilience in protracted crises and conflict-affected settings.
The Resilience Rapid Learning Series provides the practitioner and donor communities with insights and emerging evidence on how to build resilience in protracted crises and conflict-affected settings. This series documents promising program approaches and contextual insights through research, case studies and technical analysis.
This series was inspired by a Conflict and Resilience Roundtable in June 2020, organized by the REAL Award and the USAID Center for Resilience, and framed by Mercy Corps’ paper Towards Resilience: Advancing Collective Impact in Protracted Crises.
Research questions for each brief in this series align with the framework presented in the Towards Resilience paper, calling for collective action around three practice areas to drive resilience:
Rapid, real-time analysis of risk factors that drive and perpetuate fragility
Support to the local market and social systems to strengthen sources of resilience to the shocks and stresses defining protracted crises
Short-term violence prevention paired with efforts to transform the structural drivers of conflict
Three case studies have been published so far:
Harnessing Local Sources of Social Cohesion in Niger: Lessons for Building Resilience in Protracted Crises and Conflict-affected Settings
Rapid Resilience Learning Brief: Role of Markets in Strengthening Social Resilience Capacities in Northeast Nigeria
Rapid Resilience Learning Brief: Leveraging Crisis Analysis Towards Resilience-building Responses
