To apply a resilience lens to strategy development or long-term program design, Mercy Corps uses Strategic Resilience Assessment (STRESS) methodology that helps program teams, practitioners, and other relevant stakeholders, to build an understanding of the dynamic social, ecological and economic systems in which communities are embedded.
STRESS employs systems thinking to understand how disturbances and development constraints contribute to changes that affect development outcomes for people and communities.
In Asia, Mercy Corps has applied the STRESS methodology in various programs with different characteristics in Nepal, China, Myanmar, Mongolia, and India.
What is STRESS? How this method will help the resilience practitioners to continually develop better resilience strategies, especially in Asia?
Join the ACCCRN webinar where you can learn about STRESS and lessons learned from STRESS implementation in Asia, on Wednesday, 31 May 2017, at 2pm (Jakarta time).
