This program is hosted by our partner, Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.

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 will discuss 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.”

What will you learn?

  • Understanding the principles of survivor and community-led response
  • Increasing their awareness of sclr activities and the impact of funding these initiatives
  • Learning when and how to invest in sclr after disasters


Who should attend?

While primarily aimed at funders, it may also be of interest to emergency managers, academics, disaster responders and NGO staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
