Whereas it is estimated that only 0.2% of funding is allocated directly to local organisations for the implementation of programmes, the Charter for Change (C4C) calls for international organisations to contribute to the localisation of aid. This initiative aims to facilitate aid delivery and improve effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability, as well as reinforce local capacity.

The strategy adopted by Trócaire aims to reinforce the capacity of its local partners and share the essential aspects of humanitarian action with them. Through these partnerships, Trócaire aims to reinforce humanitarian aid in the least accessible areas (for geographical or security reasons), and improve ownership and resilience amongst the local population.

At the end of the study, a lesson-sharing document entitled “More than the Money” will be produced for the commissioning organisation. An article will also be written and disseminated as widely as possible in order to share the lessons learned during this project.
