Towards a Quantifiable Measure of Resilience. The objective of this paper is twofold.

Towards a Quantifiable Measure of Resilience

First it illustrates and discusses some of the challenges related to the measurement of resilience by reviewing some of the most recently published and grey literature on resilience in relation to food security. Second it proposes a new framework that addresses some of the concerns and limitations of resilience measurement identified in that literature. The main postulate of this framework is that the ‘costs of resilience’ (that is, the different ex-ante and ex-post investments, losses, sacrifices, and costs that people have to undertake at individual and collective levels to ‘go through’ a shock or an adverse event) provide an appropriate and independent metric to measure resilience across scales and dimensions.

The paper shows how the independent nature of this metrics offers an explanatory power that can be used to infer, in a testable and rigorous manner potential, causalities between the metric and household and/or community characteristics.

Design, Monitoring and Evaluation of Resilience Interventions: Conceptual and Empirical Considerations. As resilience programming gains more and more prominence as an approach for addressing chronic vulnerability of populations exposed to recurrent shocks and stressors, empirical evidence will be needed for measuring how well households, communities, and systems manage shocks and stressors and how interventions and programmes that are designed to strengthen these capacities, perform.

Design, Monitoring and Evaluation of Resilience Interventions: Conceptual and Empirical Considerations

However, despite progress on the conceptual side, academics, practitioners and donors are still struggling with pragmatic issues - in particular, how to measure, and monitor and evaluate resilience interventions. Developing a robust resilience measurement and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework is therefore a priority. The objective of this paper is to contribute to this agenda. Nhess-12-2923-2012.pdf.

Leatherman, Cambridge, Polity, 2011, x + 244 pp., £.24 (paperback), ISBN 978-0-7456-4188-1 Perhaps one of the most important legacies of Marx for contemporary critical scholarship has been the understanding of the dynamic, adaptive and resilient qualities of that system of social relations we call capitalism. Feminists have used an array of conceptual models in an attempt to capture the systemic and structural qualities of gender relations and the ways in which these are reformed and recast – gender orders, gender regimes and patriarchy, to name a few.

Mapping these relations and paying attention to the ways these are spatialised and temporalised is made more difficult by the increased attention of recent work to understanding formations of gender as intersectionalised by other forms of inequality and difference (of class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age and so on).1 2 V.

21693293.2013

A variety of theories within the field of complexity science address aspects of connectivity within societies through the logic of autopoiesis. Autopoiesis, meaning self-(re)production, is the opposite of allopoiesis, which refers to systemic (re-)production by an entity outside the system. Maturana and Varela suggest that autopoietic systems are network unities which define themselves through the continuous, recursive (re-)production of their interconnected components. As such, autopoietic networks exist in an unstable state, far from a state of equilibrium, at the edge of chaos.

21693293.2013. In this contribution, I wish to argue that the recent enthusiasm for the concept of resilience across a range of policy literature is the consequence of its fit with neoliberal discourse.

21693293.2013

This is not to say that the idea of resilience is reducible to neoliberal policy and governance, but it does fit neatly with what it is trying to say and do. A brief glance at the concept's origins shows it to have certain ontological commitments that make it ideally suited to neoliberal forms of governance. Having briefly examined these philosophical aspects, I move on to define this relationship to governance through the concept of governmentality. This also requires a particular understanding of the dominant forms of governmentality as specifically neoliberal in nature.

I then defend this interpretation of both resilience and governmentality against the claim that resilience is part of an emerging post-liberalism. 1 Lance H. There may even be multiple stable states.

ETH Zurich - Center for Security Studies (CSS) Navigating the adaptive cycle: An approach to managing the resilience of social systems. The concept of resilience continues to crescendo since the 1990s, touching on multiple fields with mutiple interpretations and uses.

Navigating the adaptive cycle: An approach to managing the resilience of social systems

Here, we start from its origins in systems ecology, framing the resilience concept explicitly in the adaptive cycle with the observation that resilient systems are ones that successfully navigate all stages of growth, development, collapse, and reorientation of this cycle. The model is explored in terms of the traps and pathologies that hinder this successful navigation, particularly when applied to socioeconomic organizations and decision-management situations. For example, for continuous function over the adaptive life cycle, a system needs activation energy or resources to grow, followed by adequate structure and complexity to maintain maturity. Implementation of crisis plans may avert collapse, but during catastrophe, the ability to improvise and re-orient will allow the sysem to emerge along a new cycle.
