Over a period of 4 months two research teams engaged with local actors operating in the humanitarian delivery space in Nigeria and South Sudan.  These local actors were associated with youth groups, women groups, Government, International NGOs, National NGOs, Local NGOs, community based organizations, and faith-based organizations. The report present voices of local actors, with a range of opinions and insights, and present country-specific findings and recommendations. The research finds that the way partnerships are shaped influences the principled delivery of aid. It suggests a need for new and stronger models of humanitarian partnership that are more equitable, and which take collective responsibility for principled delivery of humanitarian aid. An approach that is based on more transformative partnering, and that includes a wider range of actors as partners (as opposed to beneficiaries or stakeholders) in the delivery of principled humanitarian aid.
