"We see the limits of what we do": Collaborations with local volunteerism for community resilience

To build on the distinctive contributions of local volunteering and overcome some of its limitations, this chapter investigates how connections and collaborations between local volunteers and development and humanitarian stakeholders can enhance community resilience. It also explores how top-down and externally driven actions can unintentionally undermine communities’ own capacities to cope. Understanding the relative strengths of diverse actors and how they fit together helps position local volunteerism as a more effective part of a wider ecosystem for resilience.
