Resilience has got a growing recognition in the areas of international development agendas because it is believed to be an important tool in addressing the multifaceted vulnerabilities of people. There are many definitions and conceptualizations of resilience. Such varied meanings of resilience also resulted lack of consensus on its measurement approaches. Despite the lack of consensus many used the traditional objective method while few employed the subjective assessment approach in the field of ecology, disaster management and food security. Given the relevance and the growing recognition of the concept of resilience, applying both approaches in a complementary way would result a better and holistic understanding of the issue under investigation.
