Join HumanSurge and Support to Life (STL), a national NGO, on localization of Humanitarian Aid: At the first World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, the humanitarian community committed to the Grand Bargain, which includes the ́localization of aid ́ agenda: Giving local actors a more prominent seat in decision making, reinforcing their response capacity and channelling 25% of funding directly to local actors by 2020.
The ongoing digital revolution has given rise to the so-called ́sharing economy ́; connecting individuals through a community-based platform on which they can purchase, offer or share access to goods and services. Interestingly enough, the humanitarian sector has not yet been directly exposed to the opportunities that a sharing approach offers.
Will you be part of a solution that directly connects local aid workers on a community-based platform to improve the response in the aftermath of a disaster?
