Factsheets and summaries

This briefing provides an overview of key facts and figures from 2022 edition of The State of the Humanitarian System (SOHS) on locally-led action.

2018-2021 was a story of missed opportunity when it came to supporting a shift to locally-led humanitarian action. Local actors rose to meet the challenge of COVID-19 - running services in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh and distributing PPE and healthcare messaging in the Philippines - but these changes were not maintained or consolidated after the immediate crisis had passed. Total funding (indirect and direct) for local actors remains stuck at around 3% of total funds reported to FTS.
