“The best way to support self-recovery remains poorly understood. Despite some notable successes, the sector still struggles to know how best to assist self-recovery in a way that keeps the agency of disaster- affected people at its centre” (Schofield and Flinn, 2018)
The initial self-recovery project was funded by a grant from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Global Research Translations Award (EP/T015160/1) and ran from October 2019 to October 2021. The final project report is available to download below.
The aim of this project is to co-develop best-practice programming guidance for the support of self-recovery that places the priorities and agency of individuals, families and communities at the centre. We also aim to discover more about the wider impacts of humanitarian shelter assistance.
