  • Toward local humanitarian engagement: Reflections on engaging local partners in hard-to-reach areas

    The humanitarian sector has begun to recognise the significance of shifting operational decision making and leadership to local and national partners, albeit slowly. This report highlights some of the key experiences of national and international humanitarian professionals with partnerships and localisation and their reflections on them. Several key themes emerge, including the lack of conceptual clarity about localisation and its ambitions; the absence of a unified vision and voice on whether and how to implement approaches; localisation as a topdown policy priority that may not translate well in the field; and donors’ failure to revise their internal processes to allow more risk taking and more direct funding to go to national actors despite their ambitions to do so.
