Survivor and community-led response: Putting people first in a crisis
2 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. CT
In times of disasters, it is essential for the affected communities and residents themselves to lead relief, response and recovery efforts.
During this webinar, panelists discussed survivor and community-led response (sclr) as a critical framework that funders can use to effectively support grassroots-driven mitigation, preparedness and rebuilding after a sudden onset disaster or protracted crisis.
According to Local 2 Global Protection, a distinctive feature of sclr is the use of microgrants “to transfer power and resources to existing and emergent self-help groups and organisations that mobilise during every crisis, allowing for the rapid provision of additional assistance to scale up interventions and increase their impact.”
