Report on pilot survey of local leadership and capacity building in humanitarian response

 This report presents results from a pilot survey conducted as part of InterAction’s initiative to better understand and strengthen local leadership and capacity in humanitarian response. The topic of localization in the humanitarian and development fields is generally focused upon direct funding, leaving other important topics such as local staff leadership in humanitarian response under-researched. To bring other issues under consideration, Shelter Centre assisted InterAction to reach national and local organizations along with other stakeholders through a pilot survey. The results and conclusions of the survey are presented in this report and the recommendations could be usedto inform future actions by InterAction.
