The global resilience partnership
The Global Resilience Partnership (GRP) is supporting millions of vulnerable people in the Sahel, Horn of Africa and South and Southeast Asia in preparing for unexpected shocks and adapting to chronic stresses, so they can thrive in a more secure future. Convened by The Rockefeller Foundation and USAID, in partnership with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), GRP is challenging business as usual in the development world: energizing the global community to pivot from being reactive in the wake of disaster. The GRP is driving evidence-based investments that enable communities to develop ground-up solutions to avoid abrupt irreversible stress, adapt to change and transform positively through crisis.
