Resilience Foundations Course
Mercy Corps' Resilience Foundations is a two-day course delivered in a workshop setting. It draws on over eight years of Mercy Corps’ resilience learning, experience and expertise, gleaned through rich partnerships across field and global teams, implementing partners, research and academic partners, donors, and program participants.
The course uses a central question as the basis for exploring basic resilience concepts and their application in foreign assistance / aid programming contexts: What does a resilience approach require us to do differently? Designed for all aid practitioners, regardless of the sector or aid context (e.g., humanitarian, long-term development), Resilience Foundations requires no previous experience in resilience. Course participants follow the Participant Workbook and engage in a series of interactive exercises led by a trained facilitator.
