Workshop: Localisation in practice

Date: 29.11.2021
Time: 10:00 - 18:00
Location: Berlin

Opportunities and limitations of localisation in humanitarian project management

Strengthening local humanitarian actors (localisation) is one of the key challenges in international humanitarian action. Many aid organisations have committed themselves to this goal, but see little scope for more empowerment, involvement and participation of local partners within the rigid humanitarian project management system in which they are working. Against this background, the Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA) invites you to a confidential workshop to identify and discuss the current possibilities and limitations of localised project management.

The objective of the workshop is to go beyond the multiple discussions of the institutional limits of localised humanitarian action and to identify which scope of action exists within these limits in humanitarian practice and to concretise critical barriers in humanitarian project and partner management. The focus will be on a working-level exchange and on the practical implementation of the localisation agenda in everyday project management.

Format:
One-day facilitated workshop according to Chatham House Rules.
The workshop is currently planned as a face-to-face event. It would take place in a sufficiently large room in compliance with the so-called 3G-rule. If the pandemic situation does not allow for this, the workshop will take place online.

Participation:
Participation is free of charge and by invitation only.
Travel and accommodation costs must be covered by the participants themselves.
