Change can include short-term negative shocks, such as natural disasters or social instability, or longer-term change opportunities, such as technologies or emerging market growth and competition. The way a country responds to, mitigates, and takes advantage of change has a significant impact on its ability to achieve sustained economic growth and share the benefits of that growth with all of its citizens. The CRI can be used to inform national governments to identify and address capability gaps, the development community to better tailor aid programs, and private sector enterprises to improve the targeting of their investments and the reduction of risks.
