5. When and where to get specialist help

The best qualified people to assist with engaging the local community are usually also found locally. Working with local NGOs and other community groups can be the best place to find the help required to promote participation in emergency response programmes. In addition, specialists with skills in participatory methodologies and accountability can be accessed through the CERT roster (refer to Chapter 21 Human resources).

For general advice on participation, contact the Programme Quality & Accountability Coordinator in the CARE Emergency Group at emergencyQA@careinternational.org.
