Thinking Local: Trends and Standards in Capacity-Building
The dynamics of contemporary conflicts have made the way in which international actors understand and support local agencies increasingly important. As we have seen, states have become much more assertive in the way in which they relate to humanitarian actors and the building of local capacity is not simply good humanitarian practice but, ultimately, necessary to reach affected populations.
However, humanitarian action has grown into an international industry and must contend with the variety of political and bureaucratic considerations that accompany such growth. As a result, capacity building, particularly for regional offices and local partners, has become one of the most complex and controversial discussions among and within humanitarian agencies.
This Humanitarian Assistance Webcast facilitated a re-examination of the current humanitarian response structure and discuss what opportunities exist to redefine the relationship between international and national organizations.
