Summary report from Donor Dialogue on Localisation

The Task Team on Donor Dialogue hosted a donor dialogue event as part of the GPC Protection Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, on 29 May, 2018. The dialogue, which is intended to be small, focused and informal, was well attended by around 25 participants representing 5 donors, 8 local actors from Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, 2 INGOs and 4 UN agencies representing their clusters or AoRs. The theme centered on how to effectively partner with local actors, with the aim of providing space for a discussion between donors, local actors and international protection actors on what we can do to ensure principled partnerships and institutional strengthening of local actors for better results for beneficiaries.
