1. Introduction

On 23-25 October 2019, the Grand Bargain (GB) Localisation Workstream organised a “global meeting” in Brussels. Hosted by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operation (ECHO) and organised by Workstream co-conveners the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) with significant logistical support from Christian Aid, the meeting gathered over 80 participants from different constituencies, including local and national actors (hereinafter referred to by the shorthand “local actors”), donors, international NGOs (INGOs) and United Nations (UN) agencies.

The meeting was intended to take stock of progress, including insights from the Workstream’s regional conferences on localisation held in Addis Ababa, Amman and Jakarta as well as its inter-agency missions to “demonstrator countries” Bangladesh, Iraq and Nigeria, and to identify ways for the localisation agenda to move forward.
