The term “localisation” gained significant attention in the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016 and subsequently became firmly established in the humanitarian lexicon.
Localisation aims towards a more balanced humanitarian system, where the role of local and national humanitarian actors is more recognized and supported by international humanitarian agencies, donors and International NGOs.
This two-part series looked at achievements on localisation since the World Humanitarian Summit two years ago. The first webinar featured the two co-chairs of the Grand Bargain Localisation Workstream on the global level initiatives undertaken so far. The second webinar gave the floor to field leaders, for discussion on how global level commitments are turned into reality at field level.
