Community Action Collab (CAC) is a dynamic humanitarian emergency platform that builds the resilience of Vulnerable People and their institutions, in their everyday emergencies, and is ready for future humanitarian crises (climate & health). The platform orchestrates and influences actions and decisions of 360 partners, government and other alliances, enabling them to solve issues affecting 10 million vulnerable people and ensuring they access critical livelihood, health, social protection and climate impact solutions.
The impact of humanitarian crises like COVID19 is far-reaching and has multidimensional effects. A pandemic like this not only affects health but also livelihoods, and influences various other basic life processes such as education, and the effects can be felt long-term.
No single organization can combat these effects alone. It needs resilient organizations working with long-term multidimensional approaches, with a special focus on vulnerable communities.
We need to act collectively and we need to act now. Hence, CAC synergizes, augments, and accelerates the impact of its partners to build effective, efficient, and resilient institutions and eventually dynamic humanitarian response ecosystems.
The COVID-19 pandemic has enabled the Catalyst Group to build a strong and dynamic pan-India multidisciplinary network with a variety of expertise. This presents the potential to build the resilience of the vulnerable and their institutions in their everyday emergencies and to be ready for future humanitarian crises (climate & health). This has led to the #COVIDActionCollab transitioning to Community Action Collab, a ‘spring to action’ ready humanitarian emergency platform.
Our approach is born of the learning from #COVIDActionCollab is focused on orchestrating the responses of partners, solving difficult problems to find scalable solutions and influencing practice, policy and investments.
We deploy a three-pronged approach to support and enable vulnerable communities to survive and thrive amidst a crisis.
