2020-2021 Trócaire Annual ReportRead now
Localisation is a collective process that aims to ensure that local and national entities, whether civil society organisations or public institutions, are at the centre of humanitarian and development work. Localisation requires a shift in power relations between international and local organisations, both in terms of strategic decision-making and control of resources.
Having worked in partnership with local organisations for almost 50 years, Trócaire believes that local people should play a leading role in the development processes in their communities. In our new Strategic Plan (2021-2025), Trócaire has committed to a ‘step change’ in our approach to partnership, which involves shifting power more profoundly to our local and national partners in the countries where we work.
