So, what do you think? The benefits of measuring subjective resilience

Putting people at the heart of ‘resilience’ thinking is the subject of a recent paper from the ODI (Overseas Development Institute). It suggests that while measures of household resilience have largely been based on objective indicators, it may be more helpful to decision-makers to understand how householders evaluate their resilience, i.e. measuring subjective resilience. The authors explore this in more detail, and consider the benefits and limitations of their approach.
