Localisation In Practice: Emerging Indicators & Practical Recommendations

This document can also be found on the official website of Reliefweb at: https://reliefweb.int/ Localisation has been debated and researched. While there are many laudable small examples of change, a lot remains to be done. It is not acceptable that so many in-country decisionmakers and advisors, including from agencies that have signed up to the Grand Bargain or the Charter for Change, are still unclear about what that means in practice. Details may remain that need further reflection and discussion, but there is sufficient clarity now about what the justifications and motivations are for localisation, what the overall intent is (‘reinforce’ rather than ‘replace’) and how that translates into operational practices. This report offers a provisional set of indicators that enable detailed assessment and planning. This resource is part of the collection "Implementing localisation in humanitarian response ". Collections are monitored daily and new content is added.
