Monthly Interval Resilience Analysis (MIRA)
The Monthly Interval Resilience Analysis (MIRA) is CRS’ high-frequency resilience monitoring approach and is used for measuring resilience and well-being for stronger food security and resilience programming.
MIRA was jointly designed by CRS and Cornell University to provide short-interval trend data on the shocks that households experienced, the food security and well-being impacts of these shocks, and ultimately, households’ resilience outcomes. MIRA provides actionable data in place of other annual methods of tracking resilience, which fail to capture seasonal changes or how households are affected before, during, and after a shock, in time for communities to effectively respond and prepare.
