Community engagement and accountability: Good practices from around the world (2017)

This publication presents examples of community engagement and accountability initiatives being implemented by the Movement in both emergency and longer-term contexts. Our work in Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East stands testament to how community engagement and accountability is not only enabling us to better respond to the needs of the communities we serve but also in reducing their vulnerability and in building safer, more resilient communities.

Monitoring Tool for Disability Inclusion

Monitoring Tool for Disability Inclusion

This tool is designed by the ICRC to give a quick indication of how their teams engage with disability inclusion. It is not meant in any way to be judgmental or focus on what is not achieved, rather it is meant to highlight a few key issues around inclusion and also help us find ways forward to promote inclusion if the need is felt to be valuable by participants. The tool helps them to focus their interviews with each team, and also help them note progress made over the year.
