The Global Resilience Partnership aims to help millions of vulnerable people, particularly in the Global South, better adapt to shocks and chronic stresses and invest in a more resilient future. With an initial commitment of $150 million, this new Resilience Partnership will help the global community pivot from being reactive in the wake of disaster to driving evidence-based investments that enable cities, communities, and households to better manage and adapt to inevitable shocks.
The partnership consists of three bodies:
GRP Partners – Consists of organisations active in resilience who share GRP’s vision and objective and who have joined the Partnership. Current partners include: The World Bank, The Global Environment Facility (GEF), USAid, Department for International Development UK (DFID), Sida, Zurich Insurance, UN Development Program, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control (CILSS), Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC), and others.
Advisory Council – A body of maximum nine members that advises on the implementation of GRP’s strategy and provides guiding principles regarding finances, budget, and annual plans for the activities and commitments of GRP, including its Secretariat.
GRP Secretariat – A small team to service the Partnership, including convening and catalysing actions by the Partners and implementing specific activities on behalf of the Partnership. The Secretariat is hosted at the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) at Stockholm University.
