The Global Policy Centre on Resilient Ecosystems and Desertification (GC-RED) has developed a conceptual framework to guide its work on social and ecological resilience building. The goal of this framework is to enhance the resilience capacities of communities in drylands and other fragile ecosystems to shocks and stresses from climate-related weather events as well as conflicts. This will be achieved through the promotion of resilient development solutions for such communities through:
1. nurturing inclusive and sustainable livelihoods; and
2. supporting the sustainable management and use of land and water resources.
