The Building Blocks for Getting Community Engagement Right

12/2019 | Sarah Cechvala & Sabina Carlson Robillard

In 2019, CDA Collaborative Learning (CDA) and the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) jointly investigated Movement members in institutionalizing participatory approaches to improve how they work with local communities. Findings and recommendations presented in this brief emerged from this research and illuminate key areas where the Movement and state institutions can enhance how they listen and respond to local people. This brief is part of a series of briefing notes that provide supplemental evidence for the Movement Minimum Commitments on Community Engagement and Accountability presented at the 2019 Council of Delegates.
