Linking Preparedness, Resilience and Response (LPRR)

The LPRR project aimed to improve the understanding and use of best practices in preparedness and resilience in order to support communities affected by emergencies and communities at risk of violence.

The project has three strands focusing on:

Conflict prevention aims at co-developing methodologies for better resilience programming in countries facing multiple risks. The new methodologies will be piloted in Kenya, Pakistan and Honduras and revised based on lessons learned. Humanitarian response strand aims to analyse past humanitarian interventions to understand and map out how emergency response can be better informed by communities’ understanding of what builds their resilience and links to longer term development. Case studies collected in Bangladesh, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Indonesia, Kenya, Pakistan, the Philippines. Learning: it uses an action learning research to systematically capture learning and strengthen skills and knowledge. Led by King’s College London, findings will inform the practice of organisations involved in the project resulting in better programmes and more resilient communities.
