Oxfam’s Strategy for Resilience in Asia

Asia is experiencing unprecedented change. Some of these changes are bringing benefits, while others are increasing the vulnerability of some or all of the population. Resilience building is a counter to these drivers of vulnerability.

The Asia Resilience Strategy for 2015–2020 provides a broad framework on inclusive humanitarian and development trajectories focused on the poorest of the poor in the areas of:  

  1. smallholder agriculture
  2. water
  3. urban resilience
  4. natural resource management

The companion guide aims to provide practical guidance to staff working on resilience throughout the region. It is intended to be used first and foremost by Oxfam and partner staff who are directly involved in project design and implementation.
