KUNO Roundtable: Localisation of humanitarian aid in Ukraine
28 March @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
KUNO is hosting a roundtable at Cordaid to discuss the status of the localization of humanitarian aid in Ukraine, access to humanitarian financing, and the quality of the partnerships between Ukrainian and international humanitarian actors. Why is it so difficult to cut the bureaucracy? How can local civil society actors be involved with setting the priorities? How can the system be changed in which international organisations are pressured to distribute aid quickly and reach as many people as possible, even if this fails to meet Ukrainians’ real needs? And can we learn from examples where Ukrainian civil society organisations do have direct access to financing and where international and Ukrainian organisations complement each others work in the humanitarian response?
