Localisation in practice: emerging indicators and practical recommendations

This report was commissioned by the DFID-funded Disasters Emergencies Preparedness Programme (DEPP) Learning Project to contribute to learning and taking forward the localisation agenda. This report addresses two broad questions:

  • The Seven Dimensions Framework for Localisation: does this provide a basis for planning localisation-in-practice, and monitoring progress? Is it understandable and complete enough? Is it a workable reference or does it need to be revised/ further developed? What might be different priorities or pathways to greater localisation, in different contexts? What would be key benchmarks and indicators, certainly for the priority areas for localisation, in some specific contexts? 
  • DEPP contributions to localisation: Are the various DEPP projects contributing to and practicing ‘localisation’? Are there illustrative examples of relevant and good practices, but also of challenges and opportunities related to localisation, that can be found in the rich DEPP experience? Here it should be noted that the framework did not exist when the DEPP programmes and its various projects were designed, and during most of their implementation. This report does not evaluate any aspect of the DEPP projects in relation to their performance against the framework.
