GPC Policy Paper on Advancing the Localisation Agenda in Protection Coordination Groups


The GPC piloted the localisation initiative in 7 countries (Nigeria, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Libya, Myanmar and Pakistan) over the course of 2017-2018, analysing local actors’ engagement in protection coordination groups, identifying good practices and gaps as well as developing guidance and tools to advance the localisation agenda.

This learning paper is the final product of the GPC and its AoRs’ localisation initiative. It aims to identify, describe and share Key trends and lessons on the five dimensions of localisation in coordination, Good practices and recommendations on how to effectively engage local actors in protection coordination structures and increase their influence in these platforms, and Approaches and tools developed to guide Coordinators to advance the localisation agenda.
