The RESILIENCE project was born from the conviction that linking Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Poverty Reduction (PR) in humanitarian and development programmes would greatly improve the livelihoods of local communities facing recurrent disasters. CARE Nederland, Wageningen Uni- versity and Groupe URD, each of which have gained substantial experience through years of efforts and research in the three fields, came together and decided to further explore and arrive at an approach to address the three challenges mentioned above. This resulted in a three-year study and interaction from 2009 to 2012 financially sup- ported by the European Union.
