General Assembly Resolution 46/182 led to the creation of the Department of Humanitarian Affairs (DHA). It focuses on the strengthening of the coordination of humanitarian emergency assistance of the United Nations.
Pathways to Localisation, presents a synthesis of the common areas across the four national localisation frameworks in a Global Localisation Framework in two areas: 1) actions for partnership-based humanitarian action; and 2) actions for an enabling environment for localisation. Actions, and suggested indicators and results, outlined in the Global Localisation Framework are relevant for international NGOs, UN agencies, donor agencies, government authorities, and local and national actors. They reflect what more than 120 local/national actors and another 30 humanitarian stakeholders have highlighted as crucial for a shift towards localisation in their countries.
