COMMUNITY &
LOCALIZATION
What is a community?
CPA engages with all members of the community (including those who are more vulnerable and remain usually unnoticed and are therefore left behind)
Members of the community are at the centre.
What does it mean concretely?
The CPA put people at the centre as the main priority at each stage, recognizing that people’s (boys, girls, men, women) opinions and strategies are concretely used in providing better results than bulk interventions.
Why is localization important?
The CPA is built on field experience and ensures continuity of relations and engagement of different population groups (AGD) independently from a project or programme. The action of engagement can be taken over by a different implementer and ultimately by local actors
CPA ensures engagement during projects and programmes.
What is participation?
What is empowerment?
What can we do in each context?
Continuous mutual-feedback with different population groups (AGD)
“Just by going to a community multiple times, they feel already listened to.”
The time used to listen to and engage with the affected population is valuable in terms of dignity, in a context where humanitarian organization just gather data and provide things. For people is important to have the dignity of not being treated only as a recipient or beneficiary of material aspects
