As part of this special Humanitarian Exchange edition on localisation and local humanitarian action HPN commissioned a podcast on the ‘Accelerating Localisation Through Partnerships‘ (ALTP) programme. The project involved a consortium of international NGOS: Christian Aid, CARE, Tearfund, ActionAid, CAFOD, Oxfam as well as more than 200 local and national NGOs and NGO networks across Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria and South Sudan. The aim of the programme, which began in 2017, was to foster and leverage the power of strong partnerships between national and local NGOs and INGOs, to strengthen local leadership of humanitarian response and advance the localisation agenda in the four countries mentioned above.

The recording below is a conversation between our host, Jane Backhurst from Christian Aid UK and panelists Obele Oluchukwu from Christian Aid Nigeria; Nini Myint from Christian Aid Myanmar; Malish John from CARE South Sudan and Hast Bahadur Sunar from Tear Fund in Nepal, who have all lead the ALTP project in their respective countries.
