The third Resilience Academy (RA) was held in September 2015 at CCDB Hope Foundation, an environment friendly ‘earth blocks’ establishment in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The new batch of RA2015 participants, who will also come together at RA2016 in Germany, consisted of a broad mix of researchers and practitioners from over twenty countries.
The Resilience Academy is an annual event that began in 2013, organized by the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), Munich Re Foundation (MRF) and the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD). The first Resilience Academy focused on livelihood resilience and explored different issues related to resilience. Following that, the next Resilience Academy in 2014 dug into abrupt changes of livelihoods, transformations and transitions in people’s lives. The most recent Resilience Academy was centered on addressing Loss and Damage to provide knowledge for policymakers in the UNFCCC proceedings in 2015 and 2016.
