Leading up to the 2020 Conference, Farming First in partnership with IFPRI has initiated a series of guest blog posts on resilience. In this first post, Lance Robinson, an environmental governance and resilience specialist at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), reflects on what resilience means for pastoralists in the context of drought emergencies.
Join experts from Farming First and IFPRI on Twitter at 10am EDT on Wednesday, April 16, to discuss how poor people and communities can build resilience to shocks that threaten their food and nutrition security.
What does resilience mean? What shocks can we expect in the future? Whose resilience needs to be built? What has worked to improve resilience for food and nutrition security in the past, and what are the key knowledge gaps?
