Supporting Local Resilience in Sudan and beyond

Supporting Local Resilience in Sudan and beyond

As millions in Sudan grapple with the aftermath of conflict and climate disasters, traditional top-down humanitarian efforts are failing to meet the needs of affected communities. In this context, a paradigm shift is urgently needed. 

This policy brief advocates for increased support from funders and policymakers to strengthen local responses grounded in principles of mutual aid, localised action, and recognition of Survivor and Community-Led Responses (SCLR). By empowering local actors and harnessing their innate resilience, we can build more self-reliant communities and pave the way for a more effective and dignified crisis response in Sudan and globally. 

This policy brief provides practical examples of how supporting local responses can unlock communities’ potential to build resilience and weather future crises.
