How Gender Inequality Undermines Community Resilience as for Ebola Virus, Tsunamis, Droughts 

The Sahel – an ecological transition zone between the Sahara Desert to the north and the Sudan Savanna to the south – is a complex region facing large-scale humanitarian crises of increased frequency, severity, and interconnectedness. The plight of the millions who live in this region has drawn international attention. But while the response has addressed immediate needs, it has not increased the affected population's capacity to withstand future shocks and stresses.


Mercy Corps defines resilience as the capacity of communities in complex socio-ecological systems to learn, cope, adapt, and transform in the face of shocks and stresses. Despite years of aid, vulnerable families worldwide continue to teeter between survival and disaster. To better understand why this pattern persists, and to put limited resources toward the most effective responses, Mercy Corps is actively pursuing answers to the key question: Which capacities are most important for supporting resilience at which stage, for whom, and for which types of shocks?
