COVID-19 crisis: Funding, Partnerships and Coordination
Access to funding, partnerships and decision-making for WLO/WROs: a snapshot of findings.
Humanitarian Funding, Partnerships and Coordination in the COVID-19 crisis: Perspectives from local women-led organisations and women’s rights organisations
Local women-led organisations (WLO) and women’s rights organisations (WRO) play critically important roles in crisis response, but their efforts often lack both political and financial support.
On 16th July, the UN launches an updated Global Humanitarian Response Plan (GHRP) for COVID-19. CAFOD, CARE, International UK, ActionAid, Danish Church Aid and Oxfam partnered with local WLO and WRO partners in Lebanon, Jordan, Bangladesh, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Nigeria, Occupied Palestinian Territories and South Sudan to gather a snapshot of the Covid-19 response to date in terms of access to funding, partnerships and decision-making for WLO/WROs. This paper summarises our findings and recommendations.
