Briefing note: The impact of community engagement and accountability approaches

WHAT IS THIS BRIEF?

In 2019, CDA Collaborative Learning (CDA) 1 and the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) jointly investigated Movement members 2 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.
