Unlocking the power to get things done
This study aims to contribute to the growing recognition and development of locally led aid modalities and partnership models. It does so on the ‘practical’ rather than ‘ideas’ front – in that it starts from a policy context in which the imperatives of ownership and agency have long been acknowledged, but in which there remains a significant and prevailing gap between rhetoric and implementation on the ground.
