From Local Government to Civil Society, from Urban to Rural Settings: Making Recovery Inclusive

 

Monday, May 13

4:00p - 5:30p

Room 1

The session will highlight the challenges, barriers and successes faced by local governments, CSOs, community members and marginalized groups during the recovery process.

The expected outcomes are:

- A common understanding among participants about the major challenges facing local government when creating an inclusive recovery process for citizens and vulnerable populations (time pressure, project/planning loads, resource scarcity, uncertainty, need to increase local capacity quickly and effectively)

- A common understanding among participants about the major challenges facing CSOs when designing inclusive recovery processed for citizens and vulnerable populations (scale of unmet needs, loss and trauma in communities, resource scarcity, uncertainty, social injustice, societal mechanisms that preserve status quo and prevent social change needed to reduce risk, vulnerability & inequities)

- Good practices / bad practices witnessed in terms of inclusion of local populations and role that local governments / CSOs play as drivers of inclusive local recovery

- Innovative and excellent inclusion practices (solutions to an inclusion problem - real world examples)

- Hard-Won wisdom and lessons for future recovery efforts to improve inclusion and participatory practices
