In today’s globalized world, different types of risks related to natural hazards, the climate, epidemics, conflicts or economic shocks are increasingly coinciding and interacting with each other. This can result in crises with cascading effects across systems and sectors and cause high levels of uncertainty. We, therefore, need joined-up efforts within the United Nations System and beyond to build resilience that can transcend a range of risks across sectors, systems and stakeholders.
This course will introduce you to the UN system’s shared understanding of resilience. It will help you reflect on what you can do to build resilience and connect you to resources to support your resilience-building journey.
