A research report presenting the findings of research in Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria and South Sudan to establish what operational elements of partnerships between local, national and international NGOs are most likely to foster localisation of humanitarian action. Recommendations are presented for local, national, international, donor and United Nations agencies and other humanitarian stakeholders on accelerating localisation through partnerships. More than 350 organisations were consulted through this research; 85% of which were local or national NGOs. The research was commissioned by the Accelerating Localisation through Partnerships programme which is a multi-agency consortium of Christian Aid, CARE, Tearfund, ActionAid, CAFOD and Oxfam advised by national steering committees in Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria and South Sudan over two years (2017-2019). The programme, and this research, was funded by the European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO). Recommendations outlined in this report will be actioned through a pilot phase.
