Walking Together in Partnership: Exploring the Impact of Localisation of Humanitarian Action Research in the Pacific


In 2018, the Pacific Islands Association of NGOs (PIANGO) and Humanitarian Advisory Group (HAG) embarked on a journey together: to explore progress on locally led humanitarian action in the Pacific. Our partnership was founded on the idea that it was both possible to track progress on localisation, and to influence change using the research evidence, with Pacific researchers and partners leading the way.

This paper explores our successes, our challenges and our learning about partnership and research impact with the aim of promoting more equitable knowledge production and exchange in the humanitarian sector. As we move into the final phase of the project, this paper reflects on how we developed our partnership and what this has meant for the project’s impact to date.
