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) invited to a confidential workshop to identify and discuss the current possibilities and limitations of localised project management.
The objective of the workshop was 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 was on a working-level exchange and on the practical implementation of the localisation agenda in everyday project management.
One-day facilitated workshop according to Chatham House Rules.
The workshop was a face-to-face event.
Participation was free of charge and by invitation only.
