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?
with different population
“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
