Learning Briefs from CRS’s Response, Recovery and Resilience (R3) Program

These learning briefs share insights from disaster risk reduction projects in the Response, Recovery and Resilience (R3) program in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Haiti, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia, which aims to build the resilience of underserved vulnerable communities to multiple natural disasters. Disaster management and resilience plans developed by communities, households and farmers detailed ways to mitigate and respond to the different types of disasters faced by each country. A strong dimension of all of these projects was to better understand how people perceive their own resilience.
