Summary Week 4 - Introduction To Resilience For Development MOOC

Resource Type: 

During the fourth week of the “Introduction to Resilience for Development” MOOC participants enjoyed three presentations: “Community Based Resilience Analysis (CoBRA)”, presented by Yuko Kurauchi from the UNDP’s Global Policy Centre on Resilient Ecosystems and Desertification (GC-RED); “Application for CoBRA Results in the District”, presented by Ben Twinomugisha from the UNDP’s Office in Malawi; and “Malawi’s National Resilience Strategy: Upscaling Action to Reduce Shocks and Strengthen Household Resilience”, presented by Andrew Spezowka from the UNDP’s Office in Malawi.

Webinar attendees showed great interest in learning more about the CoBRA methodology, particularly regarding data collection techniques and the role of academia in these assessments, how to manage power dynamics when assessments are led by governments without including communities, facilitation techniques, gender inclusion and consideration of spiritual or religious assets in describing the resilience of communities, among many other questions.
