The results of this research aim to contribute nuanced insight and in-depth understanding of resilience in Syria, in order to both inform humanitarian efforts, as well as to reflect on CARE’s Resilience Framework which provided the framework for analysis (based on four capacities for resilience: anticipatory capacity; absorptive capacity; adaptive capacity; transformative capacity). The report concludes with recommendations reflecting the needs of Syrians in becoming more resilient and how further humanitarian and recovery programming can best support them in Syria.
Understanding resilience: Perspectives from Syrians
This report, based on in-depth and community-based research, sought to examine resilience in Syria from the experiences and reflections shared by Syrians inside the country. The research focused on the following questions: What does resilience mean from the perspective of people living in Syria? How has the conflict affected the role of women within their families and communities? How does it relate to the humanitarian community’s and CARE’s definitions of resilience? What systems need to be strengthened to better support the resilience of households and communities in protracted crisis?
