The Linking Preparedness, Resilience and Response (LPRR) project is a learning initiative aiming to identify and improve resilience-building strategies in multi-hazard and multi-risk environments globally. This is done by developing and testing new strategies, captured in three work streams.
1 Conflict Prevention: The project will bring together humanitarian and security agencies, capture and compile their existing ways of working on security and resilience and develop new methodologies for resilience programming in multi-risk contexts based on the findings. The new methodologies resulting from these activities will be piloted in Pakistan and Kenya, and revised based on the lessons learned from implementation.
2 Humanitarian Response: The project will study a range of recent humanitarian responses by the eight consortium members. A methodology for designing humanitarian responses will be developed which maximises the long-term resilience of beneficiary communities to future emergencies. The new methodology will be tested in a future humanitarian response, and refined in the light of experience.
3 Learning: Led by King’s College London, findings will inform the practice of the organisations involved in the project, resulting in improved programming and more resilient communities. Findings will be captured and shared to maximise awareness and up-take of the ideas among organisations outside of the project.
