One-day internal workshop on localisation for the ICRC

Groupe URD facilitated an internal workshop on aid localisation for the ICRC on 19 September in Geneva. The workshop was an opportunity to compare different perceptions, to improve understanding of the subject and the implications this could have for an organization like the ICRC, which, along with the International Federation and the 190 National Societies, makes up the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, the biggest humanitarian network in the world.

What is the ICRC’s position on these questions? What is it doing to reinforce the role and responsibilities of local actors and what opportunities exist in this area? What are the constraints and risks, etc.? These were among the questions that were discussed, looking at examples of activities carried out in different types of contexts.
