Funding of Local and National Humanitarian Actors

Publication year:





Since 2010, the Local to Global Protection Initiative (L2GP) has published a number of studies of major humanitarian crises, including Sudan, South Sudan, Myanmar, Zimbabwe and oPt. All studies stress the importance of local and community-led responses to protection threats but also demonstrate that genuinely locally-led responses are poorly understood and only very rarely supported by international humanitarian and protection actors. In the discussions leading up to the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, locally-led humanitarian responses finally appear to have gained some attention within the humanitarian community,2 and several NGOs and alliances are advocating for increased funding flows to local and national NGOs, while other actors are considering increased investments in capacity building of local actors.
