The Research and Information System for Developing Countries(RIS) has published #HAI CEO Sudhansh S. Singh’s paper, entitled International Humanitarian Aid and the ‘Localization’ Debate:
Why is it important to have “Local Funds” for “Local Organization”? The paper analyses the current global discourse on localisation in the light of #GrandBargain and how it is impacting the aid sector in India.
The paper analyses fundraising practice of western NGOs registered in India, which is further contributing in marginalisation of Indian CSOs. The paper can be accessed here.
