    BACKGROUND

    The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) recently launched a five-year strategic plan (FY2017/18 – 2021/22) which focuses on three complementary and interconnected strategic priorities. The Resilience Intern will support WRC to advance one of its Strategic Priorities: to inform and influence the development and implementation of resilience-based approaches in humanitarian settings to improve outcomes for women, children and youth.

    Crisis and conflict-affected populations are not uniformly impacted by shocks and stresses. Gender, racial, ethnic, and other intersectional norms impact and are impacted by the various aspects of resilience, such as perceptions of shocks and stresses, differential vulnerabilities to certain shocks and stresses, and unique resilience capacities that people of different backgrounds contribute. Humanitarian programming requires a resilience lens in order to effectively work towards sustainable and resilient households, communities and systems.
