The farming community is use to the stress that comes from the unpredictable and uncontrollable challenges that jeopardize their production and livelihood.  Agricultural resilience is about equipping farmers with strategies and information that will enable them to absorb and recover from these stresses. Resilience is the ability to bounce back when things do not go as planned.
