Connecting, collaborating and
capacity development of members
Kenya4Resilience (K4R) Community of Practice (CoP) is a network that seeks to Build Resilient Communities. The history of the K4R CoP can be tracked back to a Resilience Workshop organized by the Swedish Mission Council (SMC) in Nairobi in March. Driven by the need for collaboration, partnerships, knowledge and experience sharing in the field of resilience, 10 SMC funded CSO’s came together and designed the K4R CoP. An initial proposal was jointly developed and financially supported for 2 years by SMC. The CoP was officially launched in February 2019.
The Kenya4Resilience Community of Practice (CoP) aims to:
Empower partner organizations to integrate resilience throughout the project management cycle towards developing resilient and sustainable interventions/communities
Enhance collaboration of resilience focused interventions & innovations among CoP members especially those supported by SMC
Improve Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) participation in formulation and implementation of resilience-related policies/actions especially the Sendai framework at different levels (county-national-regional/global)
Build resilient communities through the community by members sharing their experiences, knowledge and skills for purposes of learning from each other
