In the last few years, organisations have improved in using facts and data to make better decisions during humanitarian crises around the world.

While figuring out the risks to people’s safety has helped set priorities and understand dangerous situations, organisation often fail to consider the unique viewpoints and abilities of local organisations in evaluating risks in their communities.

This session will examine the role of local actors in protection risk analysis and link with field experiences from South Sudan and Syria, focusing on inclusive and participatory approaches.
