CARE’s Resilience Marker Guidelines

CARE’s Resilience Marker is a tool that allows teams to self-assess how well resilience has been integrated into their work. It supports CARE members, affiliates, country offices, and partners with assessing projects, programmes, and the overall portfolio. This process encourages engagement and learning, in particular about the ways in which we can improve and support the effective integration of resilience into all our programming in accordance with contextual constraints and opportunities.

This Resilience Marker is not a top-down judgment tool for projects or programmes. Rather, it should be considered as a bottom-up opportunity to reflect and learn about how we can integrate resilience into an intervention in the most appropriate way for the context and type of development or humanitarian programming.
