25 May 2018. KORE – Knowledge Resilience – is a knowledge sharing platform to support building resilience to food insecurity and malnutrition in the face of shocks and stresses. It helps inform programming and interventions to strengthen the resilience of agriculture-based livelihoods. The platform provides an overview of tools, approaches, programmes, analyses and methodologies on resilience implemented by FAO and other key partners in different contexts; serves as an integrated and action-oriented platform on resilience-related initiatives; and provides good practices on resilience building.

Webinars
In order to enhance the knowledge base on and support the uptake of good practices in climate change adaptation in the agricultural sectors, FAO organized a series of webinar modules titled “Scaling-up of Adaptation in the Agricultural Sectors”. Each module targets a priority focus area for climate change adaptation in the agricultural sectors and is organized around a series of webinars.
