Time Slot: 
Working Groups and Trainings 2
Session Type: 
Training
Abstract: 

The objective of this session is to inspire resilience field leaders to scale their work deep, out and up. It will be based in part on insights from the 2017 report Rising to the Challenge, Together (in part informed by a NAF2017 workshop). Participants will inspire one another through an agenda that will include:
• Recent facts and observations from the field about the persistent Resilience Gap
• Hard-won insights from field leaders (panelists and workshop attendees) on what the field is doing to close this gap
• Resilience in action - suggestions for what field builders need to do to prevent the Gap from continuing to widen.
• An exploration of transformative capacities and assets to ensure the field's future work really makes inroads to improving lives and livelihoods, justly and effectively.
• Action planning for all, including what can be shared, leveraged and collaborated among workshop participants.
