Building resilience of vulnerable populations is increasingly important for development and humanitarian agencies. To effectively target interventions, rigorous methods are needed to measure resilience at household and community levels. In this webinar we will introduce a novel approach for measuring resilience, aiming to distinguish it from other kinds of improvement or recovery over time. We apply the new metric to nutritional data for women and children from Nepal, Bangladesh, and Uganda, and discuss its value alongside other indicators used to guide agriculture and nutrition interventions.
