As 2019 unfolds, one thing is clear: the need to build our resilience to the shocks and stresses of the modern-day world is increasing in line with the severity of the challenges we face.
Those challenges include climate change impacts, the humanitarian fallout from conflicts, and cities expanding fast with population growth and migration.
While our understanding of how to adapt to, and even thrive in such tough circumstances is growing, many countries and communities still lag in efforts to keep their people safe, healthy and free from poverty.
Over the past two years, Zilient has brought to its global readership hundreds of articles – news, in-depth stories and comment pieces - exploring a wide range of solutions, innovative approaches and cutting-edge research for 21st-century problems.
We hope that you have found our content useful and inspiring for your work, as well as a source of lively discussion and food for thought.
Zilient has revealed strong interest in, and demand for information on the latest trends in the field of resilience - whether cities designing and funding green infrastructure, efforts to integrate refugees with host communities, or homegrown ideas to help small islands confront environmental pressures.
Since early 2017, we have set the agenda on resilience as an increasingly relevant lens to make sense of a networked planet grappling with rising risks.
Now, from February 2019, we are passing the baton to others that are making strides in taking this work forward.
At the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the charitable arm of Reuters News, we have integrated resilience as a core element of journalism across our climate, food security, humanitarian, property rights and cities channels - and we will continue to report on the latest developments.
Other key organisations in the resilience space, including the 100 Resilient Cities network, the Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Global Resilience Partnership, also provide regular updates on their websites.
For the partners in Zilient - The Rockefeller Foundation, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, Blue State Digital and OnFrontiers - collaborating to build Zilient's content and reach, while fostering debate around resilience issues, has been a rich and fruitful experience.
We hope that you have learned from, and enjoyed, this journey with us.
We urge our global community of resilience practitioners to keep pushing for a safer, fairer and more sustainable world for all.
