Global Summit on Local Leadership
July 26 - July 27
You’re invited to the learning event of the LHL Network, a global community of practice spread in 25 countries and comprised by 120 members from local and national organizations, Oxfam country offices, staff and other allies and supporters of localization and local humanitarian leadership (LHL). DEPROSC Nepal is pleased to lead in organizing this summit with the support of CEFFORD Uganda.
Date: July 26 to 27, 2022, 9:00-11:00 AM GMT & 12:00-2:00 PM GMT
Venue: Online and we are expecting at least 1000 attendees.
This year’s theme “Global Summit on Local Leadership: Showcasing practical approaches for a sustainable and just humanitarian system” aims to facilitate joint learning on localization of humanitarian support from the members of the LHL network and other key stakeholders– governments, private sector, academia, faith-based groups, women’s rights organizations and/or women-led organizations, media, international agencies, donors and allies from different countries at global level– interested in local humanitarian leadership.
The purpose of this event is to bring the voices and experiences of people affected by disasters and to amplify recent experiences of local humanitarian actors in various contexts as they deal with new risks and vulnerabilities and what approaches and types of partnerships they use to protect their communities. Then other stakeholders can weigh in and provide insights on how as a collective, we can improve the humanitarian sector to be more sustainable and just.
The Summit’s four sub themes this year are:
- Transforming the aid system to be more sustainable and just
- Innovative financing and emergency response funding models
- Women’s leadership in humanitarian actions
- Refugee led responses in a world of upheaval
If you are interested in getting involved, you can send in an abstract, video clip, photo essay and other format. You can check the guidance notes in the event website.
Submissions are due to the Summit on June 10, 2022 for plenary and panel discussions and learning laboratories. Please send through your submissions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
