Learning about locally-led crisis responses

Learning from practical work with locally-led crisis responses
Apart from the individual papers below, please go to the training section for detailed information on how community-led crisis response can be taken forward in new contexts.

1. Learning from survivor and community-led crisis responses in the Philippines – This short learning brief presents key lessons from ECOWEB and L2GP’s ongoing experience with survivor and community led crisis response in the Philippines.

2.  Lesson from ongoing pilots to support community-led response to crisis of the Linking Preparedness Response and Resilience (LPRR) – This paper presents the lesson from ongoing pilots to support community-led response to crisis of the Linking Preparedness Response and Resilience (LPRR) in Myanmar and Kenya with support from among other Christian Aid and L2GP.

3. Learning from community-led resilience responses in the occupied Palestinian territories – this paper (in Arabic and English) present the key findings and learning from several year’s of practise in five communities in the Palestinian West Bank

4. Local perspectives on protection – an illustrated leaflet with key recommendations compiling from the different L2GP studies.

5. 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
