The following is shared from the 2022 Knowledge Sharing Series: A Collective Journey Towards Humanitarian-Development-Peace Coherence. The original event webpage is here

Local actors play a key role in fostering sustainable results across humanitarian, development, and peace assistance work. To enable transitions from international to locally-led development, international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) need to intentionally align with the realities in the communities in which they work, something local actors are often already doing.

Stopping As Success (SAS+) is a collaborative learning project which advocates for locally-led development by using evidence from 13 countries to inform responsible INGO transitions.

This session explored how two SAS+ partners —Nuru in Kenya and Coffee for Peace in the Philippines— have enhanced local leadership in their context. This dynamic dialogue was hosted by Grace Boone, Program Manager at CDA Collaborative Learning Projects (CDA). Speakers included:

  • Tala Bautista, Senior Vice President, Advocacy, Coffee for Peace, Philippines
  • Pauline Wambeti, Managing Director, Nuru Kenya
