Datta presented her talk at the session on ‘Resilience decoded – building blocks towards 2030’, which aimed to decode’ or ‘unpack’ the multidimensional concepts of resilience and vulnerabilities, or resilience gaps, present at the local, national and regional levels as a way of achieving the 2030 SDG Agenda.
