CARE UK is conducting research in order to learn from people affected by crises to inform best-practice guidelines and develop collective understanding of self-recovery.
Although fieldwork has been delayed due to COVID-19, CARE UK continues to support country offices remotely and is developing methods to continue self-recovery research remotely, where appropriate.
CARE UK is utilising the current time to undertake research into the wider impacts of shelter programming, specifically the relative impact of shelter on different aspects of recovery, including physical and mental health, livelihoods and protection.
Blog project updates from the CARE UK team:
To find out more about the lived reality of people recovering from disasters and to understand the impact of shelter interventions, the CARE UK and CENDEP teams facilitated field research in Vanuatu and Malawi, in partnership with the CARE Vanuatu and CARE Malawi country offices.
In Vanuatu, an external consultancy team conducted the fieldwork and produced a report based on their findings. The report includes key learnings and recommendations that will help inform the future shelter self-recovery strategies of CARE International and the wider humanitarian community.
In Malawi, a team of researchers and enumerators from CARE Malawi conducted the fieldwork. The early findings were presented at a learning event held in Lilongwe in September. Watch this space for the report!
