This learning brief presents key lessons from EJ-YMCA and L2GP’s ongoing experience with community-led resilience responses and community cash grants in the occupied Palestinian territories. This paper is the second in a series of learning briefs presenting key findings and learning from pilot projects undertaken in collaboration between local, national and international humanitarian actors and L2GP. All these initiatives are undertaken with the explicit purpose to develop and refine approaches and methods to support local agency.
