About the series:
The New Perspectives on Building Resilience webinar series, hosted by Abt Associates’ Risk and Resilience Center, will explore how a risk and resilience framework can help governments and their implementing partners efficiently and effectively target resources to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable by reducing risk and increasing resilience at the individual, household and community levels.  Each session of the series will apply this framework to a different social policy area, including climate change, asset-building, mental health, housing and community development, and health financing. Watch the first three sessions.
