Training

Building on practical learning over several years, an emerging community of practitioners and institutions across the world have accumulated substantial experience with what we for now call “survivor and community-led crisis response” (sclr).  Essentially, this approach is about how external actors can participate in community-led and driven responses.

This is not to be misunderstood as a blue print, a final method or fix-all. Rather, it is an ever-evolving set of guidance to how current externally driven aid can be complemented with directly supporting affected individuals and communities in analysing threats, challenges and – importantly – identify opportunities for positive change, which they themselves can pursue with the right kind of external support and resources.

This way of working, as much as anything, is about a shift in mind-set. To guide and support local, national and international actors to embark on such a mind-shift and employ it in practise, a couple of resources are available below:

  • One Pager: A one page presentation of the survivor and community-led crisis response (sclr) (English). For a one pager in French, click here.
  • Training package: An emerging training package for a one week co-design/training process with practitioners about to engage in using the sclr approach and guidance. Go here to find the training materials in both English or French.
  • Pamphlet: A 10 page pamphlet summarising much of L2GP’s research and experience to date – and which, among many other resources, has helped inform this new practise
  • Learning papers explaining key learning from survivor and community-led crisis response activities in the Philippines, Palestine, Kenya and Myanmar
  • A video introduction to survivor and community-led crisis response. For a version with French subtitles please click here.
