Shifting Power: localization and working with local partners, accelerating change in COVID
October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT$5.00
While international cooperation partners have long committed to localization, notably through Grand Bargain commitments to ensure national and local ownership of humanitarian and development interventions, COVID-19 has accelerated discussions regarding the need to shift power and resources to partners in the Global South as part of a practical, effective and sustainable response. This session will identify and discuss practical approaches, challenges and opportunities for Canadian civil society and their donors to shift power through localization in responding to COVID-19.
