The Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment (RAPTA) Framework

The concepts of resilience, adaptation and transformation are gaining prominence and being translated into aspirational goals that guide policy development. Understanding resilience, adaptation and transformation is critical to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those related to climate change adaptation, food security, and safeguarding ecosystem functions. Devising interventions to progress resilience goals requires methods to evaluate resilience, and identify needs with respect to adaptation and transformation. Monitoring progress toward these goals requires identification of relevant indicators. The Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment (RAPTA) was commissioned by STAP to address these needs. The RAPTA provides a tool to align approaches and monitoring towards common objectives, contribute to integrated strategies, and pursue synergies in reporting between the Rio Conventions[1]. Use of the RAPTA will assist development initiatives to generate sustained positive impacts. The RAPTA was developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in partnership with STAP. The background concepts and complete RAPTA are described in the technical report: O'Connell, D., Walker, B., Abel, N., Grigg, N. (2015) The Resilience, Adaptation and Transformation Assessment Framework: From Theory to Application. CSIRO, Australia. The case studies report presents a desk-top application of the RAPTA in two agro-ecosystems: irrigated rice in Thailand and a semi-arid agro-pastoral system in Niger: Grigg, N., Abel, N., O'Connell, D. & Walker, B. (2015) Resilience assessment case studies in Thailand and Niger: Case studies to accompany a discussion paper for UNCCD STAP workshop 19-21 November 2014, Sydney, Australia. The summary and a brief on the RAPTA are available below. O'Connell, D., Walker, B., Abel, N., Grigg, N., Cowie, A., Duron, G.
