Journal of Resilient Economies (ISSN: 2653-1917) 2023-07-31T11:21:04+10:00 A/Prof Taha Chaiechi Open Journal Systems <p>Building a resilient economy requires a multifaceted approach that addresses the various risks and challenges that can impact economic stability. This includes developing strategies to mitigate and manage natural disasters, such as natural hazard zoning and emergency preparedness plans. It also includes addressing issues related to pandemics and other global health crises, such as investing in healthcare infrastructure and promoting public health measures. In addition, building a resilient economy requires addressing structural vulnerabilities in the economy, such as income inequality, lack of access to education and training, and inadequate social safety nets. To achieve this, policies must be put in place to support individuals, businesses and communities in becoming more resilient to external risks and shocks. Moreover, it requires continuous monitoring, assessing and updating these policies to ensure that they are effective in promoting economic resilience. The Journal of Resilient Economies(JRE) is a platform that aims to advance the important concept of resilience by providing a multidisciplinary focus and a wide range of perspectives to better understand the challenges of building a resilient economy.</p> <p>As a Platinum Open Access journal, JRE offers a multidisciplinary approach and employs a rigorous double-blind peer-review process for all submitted papers. With the goal of promoting accessibility and inclusivity, JRE does not charge readers or authors for access to its articles, ensuring they are immediately and permanently available to all. Additionally, JRE is committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and actively seeks to contribute to the literature on the connection between the SDGs and economic resilience.</p> <p><strong>Publisher: Who funds this Journal?</strong></p> <p>Publication infrastructure and maintenance of JRE is fully supported by <a href="">James Cook University Open Journal Systems (OJS)</a>, driven by the belief that knowledge has the power to change lives, and that research outputs should be freely accessible online, without barriers.</p> <p>JRE aims to make the academic research available:</p> <ul> <li>online</li> <li>immediately</li> <li>without charge</li> <li>free from most copyright or licensing restrictions</li> </ul> <p>Read the complete version of JCU Open Access Policy and related documents <a href="">here</a>.</p> Editorial: Resilience for Empowered Futures: Nurturing Adaptability Across Diverse Frontiers 2023-07-31T11:20:50+10:00 Taha Chaiechi <p class="Abstract" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="font-size: 9.0pt; line-height: 150%;">This editorial delves into the multifaceted concept of resilience as showcased through a collection of papers exploring diverse domains.

The research focuses on the utilization of dairy waste through the production of organic fertilizer (manure) and biogas. The processed manure is used for fertilizing fodder crops and vegetables, both for personal consumption and sale. The study was conducted among farmers in the Tegalombo District of Pacitan, East Java. Regression analysis is employed to assess the factors influencing farmers' income and determine the potential of women's participation in farming to enhance household income. Based on a survey of 101 families, the findings reveal that households can save up to 145,949.35 rupiahs per month by reducing expenses on animal feed (grass). The regression results indicate that the adoption of circular economy practices positively impacts farmers' income, including income derived from dairy farming and overall farming activities. Moreover, by promoting the involvement of women in farm management, the study aligns with the second Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) to address hunger, achieve food security, and promote sustainable agriculture, as well as the fifth SDG to attain gender equality and empower women and girls.</span></p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+10:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Anggraeni Ratnasari, Catur Sugiyanto Validity of a Massive Open Online Course on Career Planning 2023-07-31T11:20:59+10:00 Muslihati Ahmad Yusuf Sobri Widya Multisari Riskiana Prihatiningsih Awalya Siska Pratiwi <p class="Abstract" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="font-size: 9.0pt; line-height: 150%;">Adolescents must possess essential career planning skills to achieve career resilience and adaptability, especially during times of economic uncertainty. To develop these abilities effectively, appropriate training materials are crucial. This study focuses on the development and validation of a career planning training material through a massive open online course (MOOC) platform, supporting the resilience and career adaptability of adolescents. Employing a Research and Development (R&amp;D) design with the ADDIE model (analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation), the study produced MOOC content, including handouts, PowerPoint presentations, infographics, videos, motion graphics, and podcasts. Based on the concepts of resilience and career adaptability in adolescents, the material was divided into two parts: one for teachers and one for students. Expert validation of the MOOC product rated it as good to excellent. The validated product contributes by providing strategies and career planning training material through MOOC, offering novel findings that significantly benefit the development of adolescents' resilience and career adaptability. </span></p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+10:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Muslihati Building Practitioner Resilience 2023-07-31T11:21:04+10:00 Adam Voak Brian Fairman <p>It is widely agreed that Indonesia is currently one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and with this growth has come the inevitable ‘internationalisation’ of the educational market, driven by investment, foreign aid, and trade agreements. Additionally, the Indonesian vocational and further education marketplace faces several challenges, risks, and vulnerabilities which make it necessary to integrate resilience development as a key component of future engagement practice. Technological change, economic instability, limited resources and emerging environmental and social challenges all weigh heavily on an emerging economy. Meaningful engagement therefore requires integrating resilience, so institutions can foster a culture of adaptability and flexibility. However, the content and conduct of imported models of engagement have been shown to lack the requisite local cultural sensitivity and therefore are having an unintended negative impact on educational practice (Allais, 2014). Whilst much of the substance of these imported models is delivered with good intention, there is a level of cultural inappropriateness, and this means that programs lack traction in the Indonesian milieu. In this article, the authors reflect on the deployment of the meaningful practice intervention model (Fairman, 2018) within a specified project, which is the creation of an industry-led vocational training system for the logistics and supply chain sector for Indonesia. In following this issue, the paper examines the approach, outcomes, initial design and relevant inclusion practices currently used in the education area in order to highlight a more culturally appropriate way forward for industry-led interventions, particularly in Occupational Standards and training systems design. The investigation also critically analyses the lessons learned and the changes required to assist any future foreign-designed capability development programs. The researchers critically examine their project using Driscoll’s (2007) Reflective Practice model, in order to better understanding what went well and what could be improved, paying particular relevance to donor-funded programs and the deployment of the meaningful practice intervention model.</p> 2023-07-31T00:00:00+10:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Adam Voak, Brian Fairman
