La résilience urbaine est un produit de la capacité des ménages à absorber le stress, à s’adapter et à transformer la marge d’action en gestion du risque. Cette note politique décrit dans ses grandes lignes une nouvelle méthodologie mise au point pour explorer divers aspects de la résilience dans des contextes urbains très pauvres où les biens économiques sont connus limités. La méthode a été développée en réponse à des demandes de Save the Children pour explorer les possibilités d’adaptation d’un outil de suivi de la sécurité alimentaire en zones rurales.

This brief outlines a new methodology developed to investigate aspects of resilience in very poor urban contexts where economic assets are universally constrained. It was developed in response to requests from Save the Children to explore options for adapting a rural food security monitoring tool, the Household Economy Approach (HEA), to urban contexts.
