Initiative: Building Economic Resilience of Vulnerable Populations
The impact of the pandemic Covid 19 has hit all sections of the society with the vulnerable populations bearing the brunt more than others. There are efforts ongoing for relief and recovery. The next stage is on building the economic resilience of these vulnerable communities so that they can manage future shocks and setbacks. Building resilience is important and difficult in normal circumstances and even more so in the context of Covid 19.
The purpose of this impact canvas is bringing together a group of thought leaders and CAC partners who can help find ways to do it. The approach is through creating solution circles with multiple groups of diverse backgrounds and being open for new approaches. And leveraging existing knowledge and new levers for doing it.
Key outcomes expected are:
- A landscape document with the available resilience building definitions, frameworks, models, ideas is available for use. It will be an inventory of practical approaches and tools.
- Design and implementation of pilots based on the models designed by the IC team which is refined through action reflection on the field action.These pilots will be implemented by the CAC partners in different contexts over a period of 2-3 years.
- Coming up with demonstrated models of building economic based on action on the ground and call for action for scaling it up through key players in the sector – implementers, investors and Public systems
This Impact Canvas is at the early stage of conceptualisation of the work.
