Zoom - Central European Standard Time (Geneva)


Thank you to everyone who joined us for this session. Below is the full recording of yesterdays session along with the panelists videos and other materials.


As the roles of humanitarian actors and local authorities continue to evolve, CCCM’s framework has always provided an adaptable division of responsibilities to be applied based on the capacities of stakeholders in different settings. In this session we will examine, does the CCCM “flexible framework” go far enough, or is more work needed on localization including on preparedness actions, for CCCM to provide the necessary support required to adapt to the needs of governments, national NGOs and community structures? To be as relevant across all activities as it should be, what is required of Cluster Coordinators? How should capacity building formats change? And what does it take for us all to play our role better?

By the end of this session, participants will have:

  • Taken stock of what CCCM is doing on localization currently noting lessons learned from national NGOs,
  • Learnt recommendations on how the global cluster should move forward on localization

Session Facilitator: Jennifer Kvernmo
