From Crisis to Resilience

Webinar Series

From Crisis to Resilience

With support from Irish Aid, GOAL's 'From Crisis to Resilience' webinar series returned for the second year this November and December. In partnership with The RAND Corporation, University College London, and The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, the series aims to explore the emerging lessons and best practices for building resilience in the most challenging of environments - fragile and conflict-affected contexts.

Learning and investing in resilience at various stages, and within critical socio-economic systems, is crucial to ensuring the preservation of gains in the well-being and development of people in the face of shocks, and to shift from humanitarian assistance towards long-term resilient development.

The first webinar of 2022 explored Resilient Health Systems. The second addressed Early Warning and Response Systems (EWRS).

GOAL's From Crisis to Resilience webinar series will return in 2023. Sign up to our mailing list and be the first to hear more.

Panelists from GOAL, University College London and The World Bank explored the following questions:

  • Why inclusive EWRS?
  • What is and isn't working when applying EWRS?
  • What new ideas, approaches and innovations can be applied for inclusive EWRS?
