This publication is part of the Strengthening Climate Resilience Discussion Series, which aims to elaborate concepts and application of the Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management approach.The paper is structured as follows: First, it describes the revival of the use of the concept of resilience in academic and policy circles, then the term itself is unpacked and Bahadur's understanding of the concept is outlined. Next the paper considers how we can create resilience to all kinds of risks before briefly describing the case context, Darfur. The main focus of the paper is the operationalisation of the ten characteristics of resilience through the case of Greening Darfur, which is followed by a consideration of how the programme can further build resilience. The paper then outlines issues for consideration, both in terms of resilience in practice and issues for policy makers and practitioners, followed by a conclusion.
