The Resilience Atlas was developed with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation to identify where projects should take place and allow users to derive insights of their own based on data. The developers believed that policymakers and donors needed to know where problems were occurring to know where to make investments.
The Resilience Atlas is an interactive analytical tool for building:
- Understanding of the extent and severity of some of the key stressors and shocks that are affecting rural livelihoods, production systems, and ecosystems in the Sahel, Horn of Africa and South and Southeast Asia;
- Insights into the ways that different types of wealth and assets (i.e. natural capital, human capital, social capital, financial capital and manufactured capital) and combinations among these – impact resilience in particular contexts.
The tool is a web-based open source mapping platform.
To date, the tool has been used at the national level, but there are opportunities to use the data at a more localized level. Data is available for all countries. This tool is primarily used in places where capacity for remote sensing and GIS is lower. “
