Localisation in Covid19 - Experience of Caritas national organisations with humanitarian funding, partnerships and coordination in the Covid19 pandemic
In 2020 and early 2021, the Caritas Internationalis humanitarian policy taskforce partnered on a research initiative to gather views on experiences of local leadership in the humanitarian response to the Covid19 pandemic. The taskforce brings together both Caritas partners with an international mandate and Caritas national organisations in contexts as diverse as Bolivia, Myanmar, Nigeria, the USA, Germany and UK, amongst others. A survey was developed and interviews conducted to gather insights from different parts of the confederation. Over 55 Caritas national organisations completed the survey, and over 15 interviews were conducted.
