RECOMMENDATIONS: NGOs & Risk: Managing Uncertainty in Local-International Partnerships: Good Practice and Recommendations for Humanitarian Actors

This briefing paper compiles the recommendations from the 2019 reports of the research program NGOs and Risk – Managing Uncertainty in Local-International Partnerships, undertaken by InterAction with Humanitarian Outcomes. The recommendations derive from research at the global level and field case studies in South Sudan and northeast Nigeria.

Given the critical and growing role of local-international partnerships in providing humanitarian aid in high-risk settings, the study sought to examine the different types of risk faced by international NGOs (INGOs) and local/national NGOs (L/NNGOs), and how well that risk is jointly managed in their partnership arrangements. The study was made possible by funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) and the participation and guidance of 10 aid organizations.
