GOAL uses an approach called ‘Resilience for Systems’ or R4S to understand why systems that poor communities depend on, such as local fishing industries and urban markets for agricultural produce, are vulnerable to shocks and stresses. This knowledge enables GOAL and its partners to work with those communities and relevant actors to strengthen the systems and increase their resilience.
IRMA is developing GOAL’s online training course on Resilience for Systems, to make this approach accessible to other organisations and individuals whose work focuses on building resilience.
IRMA’s team for this project is Marilise Turnbull and Lezlie Moriniere.
