A New Approach to Strengthen Civil Society Resiliency
We live in an increasingly dynamic world that is experiencing a range of changes to civic space - the ability of people to exercise their right to free speech, expression, and assembly. These changes vary from country to country, but collectively are impacting civil society's ability to serve their communities and operate freely without fear of repercussions. In this episode, I had the opportunity to speak with Roselie Vasquez Yetter, Co-Executive Director of PartnersGlobal and primary author of the ResiliencyPlus Framework, as well as Luis Gomez Chow and Olivia Baciu, two of the leaders who designed and are implementing our signature ResiliencyPlus approach with civil society organizations around the world, helping them to build a stronger adaptive capacity to prevent, withstand and respond to changes in their environments. They offer insights and learnings, and share challenges and adaptations throughout the development and implementation of the resiliency process.
