“Armavir Development Centre” (ADC) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) founded in 2005 in Armavir province of Armenia with the goal of contributing to the improvement and consolidation of the democratic governmental system in the country, promoting sustainable social and economic development and strengthening the civil society.

Save the Children conducted two focus group discussions (FGD) with ADC to get their staff insights on the results of localisation efforts carried out during the recent cooperation as part of the above-mentioned emergency response projects. The FGDs were based on the concept of seven dimensions of localisation used by Save the Children – partnership, capacity building, child participation, funding, coordination mechanisms, policy influence and visibility. The questionnaire developed for the purpose of this FGD is attached to this case study.

The objective of the assessment was to ensure deep dive into the relationships between Save the Children and ADC as part of humanitarian response project and to assess:

  • what worked well, what didn’t, and how to approach localisation next time and in other
  • contexts;
  • how to strengthen preparedness and what other capacity building support is required for
  • local actors to perform autonomous work;
  • partners’ expectations and recommendations, including garnering specific feedback on
  • which of the seven dimensions of localisation are most important to the partners and why.
