Exclusion of Local Actors From Coordination Leadership in Child Protection

Local actors are often crucial during humanitarian action as they have access to local networks and vulnerable communities. There have been multiple commitments to encourage localized coordination of humanitarian response, but the reality is that local organizations continue to be excluded. This can have serious implications for the effectiveness of child protection efforts. 

This paper explores possible reasons for why local actors remain excluded from humanitarian action. It also presents recommendations for how child protection groups can work to encourage localization in their future work.
