Mercy Corps

In communities across the world, intense change is disrupting growth and threatening livelihoods. More and more, complicated problems ranging from the climate crisis to increasing urbanisation are testing the limits of these communities. 

That’s why Mercy Corps has developed its resilience approach. Through analysis, learning and action, they get a deeper understanding of the systems that people rely on and conduct assessments from the community level to the regional level to determine their needs. From there, they develop a vision for building resilience in that area, identifying what needs to change or improve in the face of adversity. Once programmes begin, they start evaluating the results, defining what works and refining them to work even better.
