‘Resilience’ is supposed to offer us a new way of thinking about development assistance. The concept focuses aid efforts on the people who most frequently suffer from crisis or who have the most limited choices in their lives. Resilience makes the overriding goal that people can cope better for themselves whatever the future may bring, and that they have more freedoms and choices in their lives. Much of the theorising around resilience, however, suggests that it depends on things like good governance, a wide range of economic opportunities and cohesive societies.
