The Grand Bargain 2.0 re-emphasised the importance of locally-led humanitarian response. This goes hand in hand with the need to rethink roles and responsibilities in humanitarian and development action. Where are we now? Are we institutionally fit for partnering? Which roles will local, national and international NGOs play in the future? What does this mean in practice?

These are the questions that we will discuss in our online peer-learning series. The series consists of three consecutive online sessions with a mix of input, individual reflection, small group discussions, and further peer-sharing in plenary.

The learning series is oriented towards directors, senior managers from different departments and board members of German, national and local humanitarian and development NGOs. Different representatives from one NGO are welcome. After the online sessions, participants can also request further online coaching support from the trainers.

Smruti Patel and Koenraad van Brabant of the Global Mentoring Initiative will facilitate the sessions. They are extensively involved in localisation and equitable partnering debates, research and organisational accompaniment. They are also associates of the Inter-Agency Research and Analysis Network (IARAN) whose foresighting methods can be applied to different questions.

The number of participants is limited. You will receive feedback on your admission to the course after the registration deadline. Participants are expected to take part in all sessions. The sessions will be in English. Participation is free of charge.
