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