About the Resilience Atlas

Developed by Conservation International, the Resilience Atlas is an interactive analytical tool for developing understanding of the extent and severity of key stressors and shocks that are impacting food security and resilience within RFS project sites. The Resilience Atlas database integrates over 60 of the best available datasets related to resilience and summarizes the output in accessible maps at regional, national, and local scales. 

These maps give insight into how stressors and shocks interact with the unique vulnerabilities of a production system or ecosystem to increase or decrease resilience. The user can visualize and overlay various indicators related to land productivity, climate trends, and land degradation to assess current and future food production and resilience conditions.

About the training

The aim of the training is to build participants’ skills in monitoring and assessing ecosystem resilience by enhancing the understanding, the interpretation, and the application of the Resilient Atlas for planning and decision making.

Participants can expect to learn how to:

  1. Better understand resilience, assess and enhance ecosystem services as a way of building resilience;
  2. Visualise resilience using the Resilience Atlas to reveal tradeoffs among agriculture and other ecosystem services, such as water availability and quality, carbon stocks, and soil health, to support planning of sustainable food security interventions; and
  3. Create partnerships to access and share data for assessing and building resilience.
