Conference Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Conference 2018
Join global leaders, specialists, and practitioners in applied resilience measurement, evaluation and learning in New Orleans, November 12-15th, 2018!

How are we Measuring up to the Resilience Challenge? The first-ever conference of the Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Community of Practice (CoP), with its sponsors and partners, will bring together RMEL innovators and experts from across disciplines, sectors and geographies; their common passion is generating robust knowledge which enables society to invest in paths to a resilient future for all.

The RMEL CoP aims to strengthen the evidence base for resilience investments. The common adage, that what gets measured gets managed, informs this growing global network of 200+ resilience measurement researchers and evaluators.

The final day of the RMEL Conference 2018 will set a forward-looking agenda for RMEL, with a focus on how resilience measurement, evaluation and learning specialists can inform and shape high-level global commitments and investments in resilience. The day is co-hosted by the RMEL CoP with the Green Climate Fund, the World Bank, the Global Resilience Partnership, Mercy Corps and other partners.

We look forward to working with you in New Orleans and beyond!

Announcement Learning for Resilience: insights from Cambodia's rural communities
This publication emerged from four years of sustained research by partners in the Food Security, Climate Change and Natural Resources Management in Cambodia research program. In implementing this major program, the Learning Insti tute received financial support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and acted as a grant-making organization for partners.

This book summarizes lessons learned from rural communities about ways they have tried to build resilience in the face of changes that have affected their social-ecological systems. The research program consists of a diversity of projects spanning the country and focusing on a wide variety of themes and issues. Each project addresses specific dimensions of the nexus of 'climate change-food security-natural resources management' but they are integrated under one common research framework.

It was primarily witten by Khmer teams of researchers and was edited by Dr. Jean Christophe-Diepart and Ronald W. Jones for the Learning Institute in Phnom Penh.
