The current COVID crisis shows the relevance of local organizations in humanitarian responses. And that an open exploration of genuine local leadership in humanitarian responses is both relevant and urgent.
After a disaster, local humanitarian actors are always first and longer term responders and they are good informed responders. However, often local actors are (or at least feel) displaced by international NGOs whenever a disaster response is scaled up.
What innovations of 'the humanitarian system' are needed to strengthen local leadership?
KUNO, the Platform for Humanitarian Knowledge Exchange in The Netherlands, and A4EP, the Alliance for Empowering Partnership, organize during the Impact-Fest an NGO-donor dialogue on systemic innovations of the humanitarian sector for better responses.
Representatives of local NGOs are expressly invited to participate in this exchange of good practices, bottlenecks and innovations needed.
