Monday, 24 June, 2013 - 10:17

In the most vulnerable regions of our planet, the impacts of extreme weather events such as floods and droughts threaten lives and livelihoods. The most affected regions include large deltas, small islands, and exposed coastal regions, as well as arid and semiarid lands, and areas affected by glacier and permafrost melt. The Resilience Academy will provide a platform for connecting communities of expertise (early phase practitioners, academics, and policy analysts), examining livelihood resilience in the face of local and regional realities,and co-creating concepts to foster resilience.

Five Resilience Academies are planned, alternatively in Bangladesh and Germany. The first four Academies form two pairs. One cohort of participants will attend the first and second Academy; a second cohort will attend the third and fourth Academy. The fifth and final Academy will bring the two cohorts together. In each cohort, the participants will begin projects in the first year, and bring them into the second year.
