Resilience


Resilience relates to the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions and systems to absorb and address an increasingly complex range of shocks.

Remittances. Understanding barriers to remittances to recommendations for action.

Urban resilience. How to respond to climate change and natural disasters by building more sustainable, insurable cities and infrastructure.
