WEBINAR #4 : Localisation of aid in Myanmar: who will take the risk?

This webinar shared the key recommendations from HARP-F local, national and international partners in Myanmar on the structures they require and what type of support is effective to sustain a locally-led humanitarian response in Myanmar, once HARP-F's mandate comes to an end.

HARP-F also presented its knowledge system, and how it can advance these recommendations and invited a panel to discuss what now needs to happen to support local CSOs leading the response.

The webinar came on the heels of three weeks of consultations with HARP-F partners, during which we looked at all areas of HARP-F's work, from partnerships, grants, MEAL, capacity building, representation and leadership, and at cash programming and WASH, and detailed what it will take for local CSOs to keep leading the response in Myanmar.
