Inter-Agency Toolkit on Localisation in Humanitarian Coordination

Together with other clusters and partners, the Global Child Protection Area of Responsibility (Global CP AoR), Save the Children and Street Child UK have produced this Toolkit on Localisation in Humanitarian Coordination, to equip inter-agency humanitarian coordinators, co-leads and partners to invest in local and national actors’ participation and leadership in coordination in diverse humanitarian settings.

Importantly, the toolkit also provides specific resources for local and national actors to strengthen their capacity for influence and leadership in coordination fora.

This toolkit aims to be the go-to resource for localisation across a range of clusters and humanitarian coordination structures, with tools relevant to a wide range of practitioners.

The specific aims of the toolkit are: 

  • To support increased meaningful participation of local and national actors in coordination processes throughout the Humanitarian Programme Cycle
  • Contribute to increased leadership roles within humanitarian coordination structures, and 
  • Enable increased access to funding.

The toolkit presents a compilation of practical tools organised by target audience for easy use.
