Local Actors’ Capacity Building Needs Beyond CVA (MENA)

In light of the findings produced by the previous year’s research cycle on LLR in MENA, the CoP made “identifying and addressing capacity building needs” a core priority for the group moving forward. The aim is to ensure that local actors are set for success, and fair competitors for grants allocations. Thus, the CoP underwent an assessment of both donors and local actors perceptions on the matter. Notably, this was beyond CVA alone, and intended to cover the perceived gaps to consider local actors as “fair competitors” for grants allocations and funding opportunities.
