Reinforce Local Systems and Invest in Local Capacities

One of the most prominent outcomes of the World Humanitarian Summit was the commitment in the Agenda for Humanity to reinforce local systems and invest in local capacities.

Whilst there are many valuable examples of progress cited in the self-reports (to the Agenda for Humanity), stakeholders also note continuing challenges towards faster and fuller delivery of the World Humanitarian Summit localisation agenda.

The authors recommend, inter alia, that pooled funds commit to allocate more of their resources to national actors; that international actors develop funding mechanisms that would enable faster progress toward the Agenda for Humanity localisation commitments; and that strengthened efforts are needed to facilitate local actor engagement in country-level humanitarian coordination.

The paper is available in its entirety on the Charter4Change resources library.
