Norad has the pleasure of inviting civil society partners to a seminar on locally led development in civil society partnerships. Civil society partners have long and diverse experience working on localization/locally led development. Lately, the area has received increased focus internationally, with the USAID commitments and several international NGOs signing up to the Pledge for Change 2030. Norad would therefore like to convene its civil society partners and others who are interested for discussions and sharing of experiences in locally led development.

Some of the question we would like to discuss:

  • How to shift more power and resources to local civil society actors in partner countries?
  • What are the enablers and/or obstacles to locally led development?
  • How to ensure that power and resources are shifted to organisation that have legitimacy and representation?
  • How is the focus on locally led development viewed by partner organisations in partner countries?

The seminar will be held at Norad’s Information center on the 5th floor with online streaming. The full programme is available on Norad’s website here.

Registration: For physical or online participation, please register here by Friday 10February.
