For CERAR, resilience strengthens the capacity for choices and initiatives
of each individual, group and community
The resilience objective is too often reduced to bouncing back to the pre-crisis ‘normal’ situation.
For CERAR, each individual, group or community has the possibilities of going beyond survival,
by mobilizing their capacity of choices to develop positively – even in difficult living conditions –
in a way that corresponds to their values and environments.

Resilience takes different forms. Immediate survival (coping) is necessary in the face of emergencies, but quickly it is possible to move towards adapting to present conditions and aiming for a transformation of one’s environment to reach lasting impact.
