Due to the positive response, the RMEL Conference 2018 organizers have extended the deadline for proposal submissions to July 30, 2018. The extension applies to individual paper presentations, panel presentations, ignite sessions, and posters.

The conference is co-convened by the Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Community of Practice (CoP) in conjunction with member organizations and its partners.

The RMEL Conference 2018 will convene resilience measurement and research specialists; resilience monitoring, evaluation and learning practitioners; and resilience technical advisers, programmers, and influencers. The conference will draw on specialists from diverse sectors, disciplines, and geographies; together they will strengthen understanding of how different disciplines and methodological approaches are critical to advancing the RMEL field. It will also provide a platform for sharing RMELmethods, as developed and applied in various arenas, including resilience to food security shocks, resilience in urban development, and resilience in socio-ecological systems.

This year’s conference agenda is organized around the following themes:

Theme One: Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning in Different Contexts
