Digital Technologies For Resilience
This site houses information and resources developed by FHI 360, with grant funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, to support resilience practitioners and the broader development community to identify digital technologies that have the potential to enhance resilience outcomes, particularly in Asia.
Currently, you can find an inventory of more than 100 digital technologies that are being used for resilience, as well as a tool to help you more effectively plan to use digital technologies and conduct due diligence on digital technology providers.
We also hosted two workshops on this subject in Bangkok. The second Digital Technologies for Resilience Workshop was held on November 27-28. 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. You can also find more information about and outputs from the first Digital Technologies for Resilience Workshop that we hosted in Bangkok, Thailand on November 14-15, 2017.
We have also helped to set up local country chapters for those with an interest in learning and sharing about tech for resilience in a number of countries in Asia and Africa.
What do we mean by resilience?
"Resilience is the capacity of individuals, communities and systems to survive, adapt, and grow in the face of stress and shocks, and even transform when conditions require it. Building resilience is about making people, communities and systems better prepared to withstand catastrophic events—both natural and manmade—and able to bounce back more quickly and emerge stronger from these shocks and stresses."
