Locally-led Humanitarian Response: Reflections on the Haian Response Experience of Local Development Organizations

Project: External partner: People's Disaster Risk Reduction Network 9th October 2017

In conceptualizing this research, the questions that Christian Aid and PDRRN wanted to ask were: “What is a locally-led response? What are the elements that make a locally-led humanitarian action effective?”

The questions were asked at a period when there is growing resurgence in recognition of the important role that local actors – government, non-government and community-based organizations (CBOs) play in humanitarian response. The nature and dynamics of partnerships between local organizations and international agencies in humanitarian context is now a common subject of studies and documentation in light of recent calls for supporting local humanitarian capacity, reforms in the humanitarian system and a reorientation towards more localized response actions.”
