NOHA Winter School in Linking Relief, Rehabilitation and Development 2016 / Pavia

The NOHA Winter School in Pavia aims to build awareness on the concept of linking relief, rehabilitation and development, its evolution amongst humanitarian relief and development workers, and to promote sharing of experiences and approaches in order to improve dialogue and mutual understanding

The need of linking relief, rehabilitation and development (LRRD) has been on the international agenda for decades, since the food crises of mid-1980s in Sub-Saharan Africa. LRRD means that at all stages of intervention one has to take into account and strengthen measures that facilitate transition to, from and between relief, rehabilitation and development programmes.

The donors' community has endorsed LRRD in a number of policy documents, fora and statements. However, many challenges remain both at the conceptual and operational levels. While the LRRD concept has evolved over time, its implementation on the ground had remained difficutlt, as demonstrated by the high number of relatively uncoordinated EU responses to crises.

LRRD is a matter of funding and enhanced coordination mechanims, but it is as well a matter of culture and intervening actors. While contexts became increasingly complex, development and humanitarian staff find themselves working side by side. Differences in cultural tradition perceived mandates and identities can make collaboration and dialogue difficult.

The Winter School will be based on theoretical presentations, individual and groupwork exercises, video presentation, case studies presentation, group discussions and debates.

The Winter School is organised by the University of Pavia and CISP, and will involve lecturers from the academia, NGOs, and international organisations.
