New GRP reports on learning from failure and scaling innovations published

Learning from failure and scaling resilience innovations are the focus of two new case study reports sharing learning and insights from the GRP (Global Resilience Partnership).


One of the reportsGRP report cover, co-authored by Dave Wilson, shares lessons learnt from working with the GRP Challenge Funds to drive innovation in resilience practice by creating a safe space to test, learn and adapt. The report emphasises the importance of learning from failure and how it is an opportunity to share learning so others can avoid the same mistakes.

The other report, co-authored by Clare Stott, aims to understand and share learning on how GRP has supported grantees to scale their resilience innovations by documenting the role of the incubator and the progress and achievement of grantees.GRP report cover

The GRP has supported three challenge rounds to surface innovative resilience solutions and has established an incubator, whose role is to contribute to GRP’s vision for resilience by identifying effective resilience solutions and supporting them to scale, so as to increase resilience at community, organisation and sector level.

Itad has been a learning partner for the GRP since 2016, providing MEL support and guidance for GRP and its grantees.
