Strengthening LRRD in a weakened state
March 2016 - in partnership with the French Embassy in CAR and OCHA
Groupe URD has been selected to carry out a mission in connection with an initiative by the government of the Central African Republic, the Emergency Sustainable Recovery Programme (PURD). The mission has two objectives. Firstly, to establish coordination mechanisms for field operators working in the areas of resilience, and humanitarian and development aid. And secondly, to devise a strategy with regard to sustainable recovery and crisis response.
The mission will also aim to allow the different stakeholders working on specific themes, and in specific geographical areas, to take on greater responsibilities. This will allow humanitarian actors to improve the allocation of resources to populations affected by conflicts and located in areas without basic services.
The mission will include a review of existing coordination mechanisms and LRRD initiatives, a mapping of the different kinds of aid being delivered, and the integration of return programmes into institutional support programmes.
The results of the mission will be presented during a workshop in Bangui on 17 March 2016.
