GISF’s Research Advisor, Léa Moutard, recently wrote a blog for The Humanitarian Practice Network (HPN), around COVID-19 and Localisation.
Covid-19 is an opportunity for change. Flaws in the way risks are managed between local and international partners have been exposed by the current crisis. Building on lessons learned from the research I oversaw at GISF (which investigates local NGOs’ perspectives on risk transfer, partnerships and security risk management),+ here are three ways to make risk-sharing more than just an aspiration for the localisation agenda.
The Humanitarian Practice Network (HPN) was established in 1994 to provide an independent forum for policy-makers, practitioners and others working in or on the humanitarian sector to share and disseminate information, analysis and experience, and to learn from it. The only network of its kind, HPN plays a key role in examining policy developments and distilling practice.
