Understanding Resilience animation

This original JBA animation explores what resilience means to our business and communicates the simple 4-stage framework, AWARE – ADAPT – RESPOND – RECOVER, that we’ve adopted to support our clients in building their resilience.

The next 5 years will witness significant shifts in the way we must adapt to the threat and impacts of climate change. This will require urgent collective action to build community and environmental resilience. But what does building resilience actually mean? It’s a term that’s increasingly used across various disciplines and professions, often with uncertain and conflicting meanings.  

We have therefore identified the need for a clear description of what resilience means to us at JBA. And the need to develop a common understanding that we can all relate to; a description that would relate to our clients and highlight how we can help them plan to become more resilient. Importantly for us, we wanted to create a context for adaptation and response to the impacts of rising sea levels, more extreme weather, and more frequent and severe floods and drought.
