The Reality of Shifting Power to Local Actors: Case studies on child protection initiatives in Nigeria, Kenya, & Malawi
To better understand the experiences of local actors who have engaged with the international humanitarian response, the Care and Protection of Children (CPC) Learning Network and the Child Protection Area of Responsibility (CP AoR) documented initiatives aiming to increase engagement of national organisations in child protection coordination mechanisms across Nigeria, Kenya, and Malawi. There were many overlapping themes across the case studies, such as lack of funding for local organizations, operational capacity building needs/challenges, and more. During the webinar, we plan to share overarching findings from the three case studies, and have a candid discussion around approaches to transferring power into local hands, challenges, promising practices, and lessons learned.
