Harmonizing Reporting Pilot: Mid-Term Review
Global Public Policy Institute
26 Jul 2018

Download resource

This review details the experiences with and results of the “Harmonizing Reporting Pilot” up to its mid-point. The Harmonizing Reporting Pilot is an international reform pilot which seeks to simplify the reporting of humanitarian activities by testing a standardized template. Supported by 12 donors and 23 partners across three pilot countries (Iraq, Myanmar and Somalia), it is the first time such a system-wide reform takes place. The initial results are encouraging: the new template is appreciated for its accessible language and one third of users feels it saves time. Yet the review also shows areas for improvement: the new standardized template is not as widely used as it could be and the initial “one-size-fits-all” approach has its limits. As a result, adjustments to the template and further guidance on how to use it are necessary

Survivor and community led crisis responses in the Philippines
Local 2 Global Protection
20 Jun 2018

Download resource

This learning brief presents key lessons from ECOWEB and L2GP’s ongoing experience with survivor and community led crisis response in the Philippines. The paper is the first in a series of papers presenting key findings and learning from pilot projects undertaken in collaboration between a number of local, national and international humanitarian actors and L2GP. All these initiatives are undertaken with the explicit purpose to develop and refine approaches and methods to support local agency. The paper is co-authored between Regina “Nanette” Antequisa of ECOWEB (Philippines) and Justin Corbett from the L2GP initiative. “One important aspect we have learned is the need to ensure that those in the forefront – the communities and people affected by the disasters – should be considered to have the capacity to help themselves, plan their own action, manage the response and design the program…. Too often though, a disempowering process and relationship between INGOs and L/NNGOs, which often is replicated between L/NNGOs and the very survivors and communities, means that such opportunities for initiating real change are missed.” (Regina ”Nanette” Antequisa).
