Linking preparedness response and resilience in emergency contexts: Philippines case study policy recommendations

This policy brief outlines the core messages and recommendations coming out from the study that explored Christian Aid Typhoon Ketsana and Help Age International Typhoon Haiyan interventions. The authors asked community members, field staff, government officials and other key stakeholders what the biggest challenges were in implementing resilience informed humanitarian response and what they would recommend for improved practice. The brief aims to analyse past humanitarian interventions to understand and map out how emergency response can be better informed by communities’ understanding of what builds their resilience and links to longer term development.
