What is Resilience?

Climate resilience is about bouncing forward, rather than "bouncing back" to the status quo. It is about eradicating inequities and unsustainable resource use. True resilience addresses the root causes of the climate crisis while advancing the social and economic transformation of communities.

 

Climate resilience requires a holistic view of the challenges we face, calling for solutions at the intersection of people, the environment, and the economy. A people-centered approach to resilience encompasses not just mitigation and adaptation, but also the following elements: human rights and democracy, economy, and ecology.

This framework:

  • Advocates deepening democratic practices at the local and regional levels

  • Puts forth principles and practices defining the emergent field of climate resilience

  • Offers examples and resources for community-based institutions implementing community-driven planning processes

  • Is useful for a range of stakeholders, including community-based organizations, philanthropy, and the public sector.

The opportunity for increasing community resilience is in the very process of developing a plan when those who are most impacted are at the heart of society’s efforts to build a resilient future.
