A recent CGIAR study led by researchers from the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) sought to explore issues surrounding aid delivery in pastoral communities, particularly during drought and provide guidance to humanitarian and development aid actors.
The systems approach will help in setting up carefully though out research hypotheses that address the pitfalls faced by the agriculture and nutrition community in addressing resilience.
At the recent ‘2020 resilience’ event in Addis Ababa, scientists from the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) organized a side event on ‘measuring and evaluating resilience in drylands of East Africa.’ Panelists from ILRI and the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) shared findings on ways to measure and evaluate resilience.
Resilience has been the talk of development and humanitarian communities for some time already – so much so that it runs the risk of creating as much noise and confusion as solutions to practical problems. This is why the 2020 resilience conference, organized by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) from 15 to 17 May 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is welcome.
