The Resilience Assessment Tool (ResAT) assesses whether policy goals and instruments encourage, enable, tolerate or constrain farmers’ resilience enhancing strategies and resources.
The Resilience Assessment Tool (ResAT) builds on broad academic literature that has identified characteristics of resilience-enhancing policies. However, the report adds a distinction between policy characteristics that enhance either robustness, adaptability or transformability.
The aim of the report is not to assess the resilience of policies themselves, but the extent to which these policies influence the resilience of European farming systems, within the eleven member states of SURE-Farm’s case studies.
