Pathways to Localisation outlines eight priority actions for partnership-based humanitarian action, and five actions for an enabling environment, for locally-led humanitarian action. The paper is informed by more than 400 humanitarian agencies – the majority of them local and national organisations – through research, piloting and the development of National Localisation Frameworks, in Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria and South Sudan. The paper outlines priority actions and a range of indicators under the areas of partnerships, capacity, financial resources, and coordination. The paper was developed as part of the Accelerating Localisation through Partnerships project implemented by Christian Aid, CARE, Tearfund, ActionAid, CAFOD and Oxfam, guided by national steering committees, and funded by the European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) over 2017-2019.

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

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).
