Update from InterAction/Catholic Relief Services discussion on localisation

Why does localisation matter, how does it work, and how to make it last?

Monday, July 23rd, Washington D.C:

This session explored the localization process through findings and experience from a capacity strengthening project managed by CRS that is working with 25 different local faith actors in Lebanon and Jordan called ‘Preparing to Excel in Emergency Response (PEER)’. The discussion looked at how local faith actors are embodying the Grand Bargain promise, best practices in holistic capacity strengthening with local partners and the time, investment, and enabling environment necessary for long term achievement under the localization agenda.

Guests included Ramzi El Hage, CRS PEER Project Manager for Lebanon and Jordan; Meghan Armistead, CRS Senior Technical Advisor, Partnership & Capacity Strengthening; and Fadi Nasr, General Secretary for The Orthodox Youth Movement in Lebanon, a local faith organization participating in the PEER project.

The presentation, including some great questions and discussion, can be viewed here (a name and email address are required to view this recording).
