10:00 - 13:00
Add to calendar

The European Humanitarian Forum (EHF) will host a panel dedicated to localisation, set to “highlight the new EU ambition and concrete steps to move forward the localisation agenda and provide a platform for inter alia sharing best practices on local capacity building, localised financing models, equal partnerships, and promotion of women-led organisations” (EHF online programme). The above-mentioned panel is also expected to be the starting point of a wider consultation process organised by DG ECHO and set to feed the future DG ECHO’s Localisation Guidance. It is also expected that a humanitarian talk focused on localisation will take place.

This session will be an opportunity to come together as part of a working exchange to discuss key elements of ECHO localisation guidance to date, as well as the upcoming EHF localisation sessions including:

  • Incentives & disincentives related to risk sharing and accountability
  • Strengthening quality partnership and a transformative approach to localisation when the EU funds national/local NGOs through intermediary agencies
  • Discussion on EU direct/indirect funding to national/local NGOs in the context of DG ECHO regulations and the EU’s wider aid architecture

Please note that a comprehensive agenda will be shared with participants in due time.
