This report presents the findings from qualitative empirical research undertaken by the West Africa Civil Society Institute and Global Fund for Community Philanthropy aimed at understanding localization agenda and shift the power as mechanisms to strengthen power and resource flow to local and local civil society organizations (CSOs) working in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal. The report also seeks to develop a better understanding of how African CSOs including philanthropic organizations understand localization agenda and shift the power, and to support growing efforts to build a future of increased localized humanitarian action and a balanced power where there is equal opportunities and well-balanced resource between donors and CSOs in the humanitarian aid system. The report further examines the role of African philanthropic organizations and the added value and challenges of pooled or intermediary funding mechanisms in promoting the localization agenda and shift the power.
