Resilience Measurement Principles - Toward an Agenda for Measurement Design
The Food Security Information Network supports the development and harmonization of resilience measurement methods. A technical working group composed of renowned experts was constituted to lead the identification of resilience measurement principles and the development of a common analytical framework and technical guidelines for measurement.
This paper is an initial step toward the development of resilience measurement design used by stakeholders (e.g. programme staff, monitoring and evaluation, policy makers). It outlines:
- A definition of resilience
- A series of measurement design principles
- General technical guidelines for Resilience Measurement commonly used to promote rigor in all measurement approaches
- A set of substantive issues and analytical concerns
This publication is the first in a series of three papers that will be issued over the course of the next year, which will focus on an analytical framework that addresses the challenges, issues and concerns associated with resilience measurement.
