This report presents key findings of the country level dialogue carried out in the Philippines between February and July 2021 and aims to serve as a localisation blueprint, a plan of action, with concrete recommendations to be taken forward by various stakeholders.
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.
As part of its commitment as the 63rd signatory of the Grand Bargain, the Alliance for Empowering Partnership (A4EP) committed to support two country-level dialogues in collaborative process with its members in the Philippines and Jordan. In the Philippines, the Ecosystems Work for Essential Benefits ECOWEB is taking the lead in the process in collaboration with the UN OCHA, OXFAM Philippines and A4EP and with support from the UN Resident Coordinator.
These recommendations reflect the views and voices of both C4C INGO signatories and national NGO endorsers highlighting some practical ways forward for the Grand Bargain Facilitation Group (FG) and Eminent Person (EP) in accelerating the Grand Bargain process.
Call for country-based co-facilitators
The Localisation Workstream is seeking self-nominations for potential country-based co-facilitators to support the dialogue processes on localisation. Nominations should be submitted together by at least three co-facilitators, one of which must be a local actor and one a GB signatory.
Members of Alliance for Empowering Partnership are inviting you to a dialogue series, supported by Community World Services Asia and, KUNO (Platform for Humanitarian Knowledge Exchange) and in collaboration with other international and local platforms to contribute to the body of alternative knowledge.
