The Resilience Institute

Creating a Climate Resilient Future – Together

TRI is a charitable organization based in Canada. Our mission is to co-create a climate resilient future and reduce risk to disasters.

How The Resilience Institute is responding to COVID-19.

  • As a new charity we will likely struggle with absorbing the cascading shocks of COVID-19.
  • But our work just became all the more urgent.
  • Building resilience to pandemics and climate impacts go hand-in-hand.
  • Fast-tracking community-based actions that build resilience are needed NOW.
  • We must act swiftly and intentionally to ensure communities develop resilience.
  • By building on existing relationships strengthening emerging ones we can make a difference – especially to those living in remote and Indigenous communities who are extraordinary vulnerable.
 
What this means for TRI.
  • Shifting our focus to “learning while doing” on activities that develop food, water, and energy security, like community-based greenhouses, rain-water capture units and increasing local, sustainable energy capacity
  • Strengthening pathways to ensure successful processes are to scale (local to global)
  • Reprogramming and rewriting cases-for-support so we can effectively engage with funding partners and collaborators who can bring this work to fruition at warp speed.
 
What we need.
Funding to the “Area of Greatest Need” so we can hire the right skills, right now as we can prepare for the implementation of new and relevant initiatives.
