ClAnnouncing the launch of the Local Procurement Learning Partnership today, with a big splash.
The Local Procurement Learning Partnership (LPLP) is a multi-stakeholder partnership initiative, to improve the timely, relevant and efficient use of local procurement in humanitarian response and resiliency building activities. The Local Procurement Learning Partnership, housed within the Humanitarian Logistics Association, seeks to do this through: capacity building, technical assistance, information sharing and policy advice.
Much like the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP - the Cash Learning Partnership), the Local Procurement Learning Partnership (LPLP) will support organizations and practitioners in enhancing local procurement potential in humanitarian and development contexts around the world; through capacity building, technology enhancers, innovative policy advice and knowledge management. This initiative represents a practical step in the localization agenda - reinvesting capital from the aid industrial complex into local markets and local economies.
