This paper, published by the Humanitarian Practice Network, distils ten years’ experience of sclr in natural disasters, armed conflict, persistent poverty and social unrest. By presenting evidence from crisis contexts around the world the paper demonstrates the necessity of letting local people and communities take control of the response and shows how it can done in practice. The paper is a call to action for implementation of truly locally-led responses across the aid sector.
