Resilience in Action

Agricultural resilience is about equipping farmers to absorb and recover from shocks and stresses to their agricultural production and livelihoods. Some shocks are short-term, others long-term.  Some come suddenly while others are predictable.  And some are more severe while others slowly erode farmers’ ability to farm.
