A dynamic analysis of resilience in Uganda

Measuring resilience and how it varies over time is extremely important for policy makers and people living in risk-prone environments.

This paper embraces the definition of resilience as “the capacity that ensures stressors and shocks do not have long-lasting adverse development consequences”, adopted by the FSIN TWG on Resilience Measurement, and applies econometric techniques for estimating household resilience using the so-called Resilience Index Measurement and Analysis (RIMA) recently proposed by FAO (2013).
