Localising Development Practice in an era of COVID-19: What Progress has been made?

If you’re keen to know what’s happening in the space of localising international development assistance and foreign aid across the humanitarian and development sectors this event is for you.

There has been a strong push for localisation (or locally-led) in humanitarian and development programs through various government and civil society organisations,  for a number of years, but the COVID-19 pandemic offers new opportunities and challenges.

In this online discussion, organised by Melbourne Development Circle panellists Lana Woolf – Director of Edge Effect, Linda Kenni – Researcher of Humanitarian Advisory Group and Anna Pelkonen – Program Lead of Oxfam Australia share their views and work in this space of how to localise humanitarian and development programs and discuss how the global pandemic has helped and hindered their work.

This is an online Zoom discussion hosted by the Melbourne Development Circle with a small voluntary fee between $8 – $22 which will go towards Girls Education programs.
