Closing the Gap: Localising Humanitarian Response

This event will critically analyse efforts of both national and international actors to address some of the challenges they face in their efforts to respond to communities in need. The panel will discuss the ground-breaking Charter4Change from the perspective of INGOs signed up to the commitments and national NGOs’ experiences and endorsement of the Charter, what donors can do to push forward the localisation agenda and the role of the High Level Panel on Humanitarian Financing.
