Feminist Humanitarian System Building Block I: Advancing Gender-Transformative Localization

OVERVIEW

An action brief outlining the challenges and opportunities for shifting more power to women-focused civil society organizations in humanitarian settings, and why this is key for building a feminist humanitarian system.

Sources:

  • 8.74% of global humanitarian funding was allocated to local and national actors, which was an increase from 2.9% in 2017, and 2% in 2016 (Overseas Development Institute, 2019)
  • Both the Grand Bargain and Charter for Change have had limited references or commitments to gender, which has stalled their ability to benefit women-focused civil society organizations (ActionAid & Care, 2018)
  • While a vast majority of Charter for Change signatories reported that they channeled 20% or more of their funding to local or national NGOS in the 2018-2019 reporting period, only four signatories actually publish data on funding flows to local and national NGOs as part of their publically available annual reports (Charter for Change, 2019)
