VCC chairperson launches book on humanitarian action

The Chairman of the Vanuatu Christian Council of Churches (VCC) Pastor Alan Nafuki has launched a localisation book that will play an important role in changes towards a more locally-led humanitarian system in the Pacific.

‘Tracking Process on Localisation: A Pacific Perspective’ will provide an important contribution to respecting and strengthening leadership by local authorities and the capacity of local civil society in humanitarian action.

Pastor Nafuki said “The global humanitarian sector is currently developing ways to measure progress on localisation following on from the commitments made at the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in 2016.

The book also features putting local first, how to measure local leadership and the level of ownership.

“Pacific Islanders can rightly be proud of our global reputation for upholding fundamental leadership but we can always do more. It’s an honour to launch this educational resource and I welcome the important conversation this useful book should spark,” said Pastor Nafuki.

The book is part of the humanitarian advisory groups’ intention to impact localisation of humanitarian action in the Pacific research project.

The book launch was witnessed by the Vanuatu Association of Non-Government Organisation (VANGO) and Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Organisation (PIANGO) in Port Vila Monday.
