The Global Resilience Challenge: How would you build resilience?

    In this exclusive Devex webinar, representatives from The Rockefeller Foundation and USAID join to provide an overview of the Global Resilience Partnership and discuss their flagship challenge.

    The reality of increased natural disasters, greater stresses on development spending and a rapidly growing population calls for new solutions.

    In response to this growing need, The Global Resilience Partnership, currently spearheaded by The Rockefeller Foundation, U.S. Agency for International Development and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, has committed $150 million to help millions of vulnerable people in the Sahel, the Horn of Africa, and South and Southeast Asia better adapt to shocks and chronic stresses and invest in a more secure future.

    An essential feature of the Resilience Partnership is a multiphase resilience design challenge, focused on bringing together people and organizations from across sectors to collaborate on bold and innovative solutions to the toughest resilience challenges in the three focus regions. These teams will collectively research and diagnose problems, and develop locally-driven, high-impact solutions that can build resilience at scale.
