Integrating and measuring Early Recovery in the collective response to crises
Though the majority of stakeholders are now convinced of the validity of Resilience approaches to aid, Early Recovery approaches have not yet been properly integrated and there is no shared method for putting them into practice, with the multi-actor coordination that this involves. What is more, demonstrating that recovery activities/programmes have added value is complicated, and there is therefore a need to develop tools to measure the effects of these programmes. UNDP and Groupe URD are working together to implement a project funded by ECHO to promote the integration and operationalisation of the Early Recovery concept in the collective response to crises. After an exploratory mission in the Sahel, Groupe URD will be going to Bangladesh in May/June 2015.
