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.
The project is funded by a grant from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Global Research Translations Award (EP/T015160/1). The project will promote increasingly resilient communities through evidence-based research and practice to support the inevitable process of self-recovery after humanitarian crises.
“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)
As part of the project's focus on the wider impacts of shelter, we hosted a large online Multi-sectoral Learning Day on Shelter and Health. The final meeting report, presentations from the day and meeting information are all available to view and to download.
