Christophe Bene explores how resilience can be a powerful concept, bringing insights into how people respond to shocks and also how this can be linked to longer-term development outcomes. In his blog, he discusses research findings that challenge assumptions of conventional models suggesting that resilience is not just about income or assets. The research findings are significant for building better resilience interventions.
