Understanding Community Resilience: Findings from CoBRA Assessments

Document Summary

The Community Based Resilience Analysis (CoBRA) assessment methodology is one of the first practical analytical tools developed to identify indicators for measuring community resilience. This report summarizes the findings of the first round of CoBRA field testing in four drought-prone locations in Kenya (Marsabit, Turkana and Kajiado counties) and Uganda (the Karamoja sub-region). It also reports on the outputs of subsequent validation sessions held in each of the four locations with local technical stakeholders and community representatives. Individual assessment reports for each location are attached as Annexes to this report.
