From Vulnerability to Resilience, or V2R, is a framework for analysis and action to reduce vulnerability and strengthen the resilience of individuals, households, and communities. It provides a simple roadmap that sets out the key factors which contribute to people’s vulnerability: exposure to shocks and stresses; future uncertainty; fragile livelihoods; and weak governance. For resilience-building projects to be successful, project workers need to understand the contribution of their activities to building resilience. V2R is a simple and practical approach to put this into practice to benefit the most vulnerable.
