Turning Rhetoric into Resources: Transforming the Financing of Civil Society in the Global South

By
June 2018

The ‘localisation agenda’ is being driven by international actors, sometimes well-meaning, but often keen to preserve the status quo. What is missing is a vision and agenda for change from local and national actors themselves, the confidence and tools to assert themselves and to demand something different. Financing solutions can be designed to inspire and incentivise change models and alliances, which in turn may be catalytic in changing global financing practices, yet there is a dearth of ideas and proposals for practical alternatives to the current financing model.
