This paper provides an overview and commentary on a special issue of the journal Disasters that reflects on experiences in resilience-building. Experiences are drawn from two recent DfID-funded programmes in some of the world’s most climate-vulnerable countries and contexts. These programmes have focused on scaling up action to build resilience, principally through the expansion and replication of good practices by influencing government policies, plans and investments. The papers provide insights that are each grounded in different contexts and understandings of local realities and the factors that support and undermine people’s resilience.
