Towards principled and gender-transformative locally-led humanitarian response

CARE International welcomed the inclusion of localization as one of the priorities of the Communication on the EU's humanitarian action. In particular, we appreciate the explicit commitments made to provide stronger support to local actors and responders in humanitarian emergencies, including the need to support capacity sharing, provide guidance on localization to ECHO partners, and increased contributions to pooled funds accessible to local actors.
