New methods in resilience measurement

Despite growing support for resilience-building initiatives within the international development community, efforts to measure resilience face a number of critical challenges. Evaluators have
difficulties not only in defining resilience but also in choosing the right indicators and finding ways of recognising the many intangible elements that contribute to a household’s resilience (such as
power, social networks and norms). New methods and tools are desperately needed to help address some of these shortfalls.
