GRAID: work related to the 2020 Human Development Report
GRAID is a programme hosted by the Stockholm Resilience Centre and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency designed to bridge the worlds of resilience thinking and development practice
- The new context for development and why it matters
This deep dive series sets the context for doing development in a rapidly changing world. We will be sharing selections of short, engaging video chapters taken from the recent Massive Open Online Course; ‘Transforming development – the science and practice of resilience thinking.’
- Development in the Anthropocene: The role of resilience
This talking point outlines how development must go beyond current development paradigms, and how resilience has been identified as an avenue to address resilience in the Anthropocene
- Cross-scale challenges of the Anthropocene
This insight brief xplores what it means to live in a world that is increasingly connected: the local influences the global and vice-versa, often in new and unpredictable ways, creating risks and opportunities
- A resilience perspective on complexity and development
Understanding complexity in a development context helps to highlight how: simple interventions are not enough, how dynamic and changing circumstances make surprises inevitable, and how changes in one part of a system can cascade up or down, changing the context.
