Panellists from the Center for Social Integrity, The Border Consortium, Mercy Corps, the Center for Operational Analysis and Research (COAR) and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) shared their experience of remote partnerships in Myanmar, lessons from the humanitarian response in Syria, and guidance on what has worked and what has not for remote partnerships in other contexts. Participants commented on the delineation between remote partnerships and localisation, how to implement remote partnerships in Myanmar’s post-coup context, the type of accountability mechanisms that they require, and the crucial role and agency of affected communities and local and national responders in humanitarian programming.
