NEAR Localisation Performance Measurement Framework

The purpose of this Localisation Performance Measurement System (LPMF) is to evidence progress towards achieving localisation commitments. While its focus is on local and national actors, it is anticipated that it will also be relevant to international NGOs, UN agencies and donors as well as research and academic institutions that are evaluating localisation. The LPMF described in this document has benefited from the support and assistance of a range of stakeholders and builds on existing research. The development of the LPMF has been guided by the objective of delivering a tool that is clear, practical, and that can assist in strengthening the evidence base for localisation and advance a common understanding of the progress that is being made as well as identifying areas of weakness.
