Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the pandemic may present opportunities to fast track a shift towards a locally-led response by reinforcing the commitment of aid organisations to implement responses that are ‘as local as possible and as international as necessary’ (IASC, 2016).

In this report the Humanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA), working with the Department of International Development at the London School of Economics (LSE), analyse data from their online learning platform and one of their flagship programmes to try to better understand the localisation agenda and provide insight into what the future of digital humanitarian learning may look like, as well as current and forthcoming needs.
