Learning resources from L2GP for locally-led protection and survival

Local perspectives on protection – an illustrated leaflet with key recommendations compiling from the different L2GP studies – find it here

Online versions of three L2GP webinars on community-led protection (first aired in June 2015)
Webinar 1:
What is Community-led Protection and Survival – this webinar presents practical examples and genral learning from the L2GP research in major humanitarian crises. Illustrated with practical examples from among other Palestine, Syria, Sudan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Zimbabwe, this webinar explains what the L2GP research has taught us about locally-led protection and survival in practise as well as conceptually.
Speakers: Nils Carstensen and Kholoud Mansour

Webinar 2:
Supporting locally-led protection – getting started
In the second webinar Justin Corbett shares ideas for an emerging practical framework that might guide practitioners wishing to support locally-led protection responses to rapid onset emergencies at scale. The central role of Participatory Action Research (PAR) is explored as a core tool for 1) identifying entry points for engagement, 2) as a means of learning what support is needed and 3) how can it be provided while doing least harm (including conflict sensitive programming).
Speaker: Justin Corbett

Webinar 3:
Maximizing potential of locally-led, globally-supported responses – maintaining the momentum
Complementing Participatory Action Research (PAR), a range of other key programming tools, approaches and considerations is explored during this webinar, based on case studies in Africa and Asia. These include: practical implications of a range of cash-based interventions (ranging from individual transfers to organizational grants); related issues of organizational and institutional sustainability; integrating protection of physical safety, livelihoods, rights and dignity; capacity development at different levels.
Speakers: Kerren Hedlund and Justin Hedlund
