  • 1.  Operationalizing Locally-Led Development: Debunking Myths

    Posted 03-10-2022 09:25
    Dear Humentum Community,

    Join us on March 16, 10AM ET for the next installment of our Operationalizing Locally-Led Development webinar series! Sign up here.

    Alongside the many operational and policy challenges to increasing locally-led development, there are several pervasive myths throughout the sector that also hinder progress. Before operational progress can be made to advance locally-led development, the sector must unpack why other efforts have stalled in the past. This webinar will bring together a panel of experts to 'debunk' some of the common myths surrounding locally-led development, including issues of fraud, compliance with donor regulations, and the capacity of local organizations.

    Panel of experts:

    • Haidy Wijaya, Finance Director, World Vision Uganda
    • Harriet Robina Gimbo, Programme Quality, Research, Innovation and Impact Advisor, ActionAid
    • Tessie San Martin, CEO, FHI360
    • George Were, Senior Director of Internal Audit, Catholic Relief Services

    Upcoming webinars in the Operationalizing Locally-Led Development series:
