In this “Pathways to Power” Podcast Series, Terry Gibson of Inventing Futures has been linking up people working at the front-lines of development and humanitarian response for a number of candid conversations. A common thread to these is that – despite its stated goals – the aid industry often fails in practice to focus on local needs and priorities. Why is this? More importantly, what changes are needed? The first episode explores the idea of localisation and how it is interpreted in both theory and in practice. The podcasts provide an input into the Global Fund for Community Foundations symposium ‘Pathways to Power’ : https://globalfundcommunityfoundations.org/news/introducing-the-pathways-to-power-podcast-series/
