African Development Solutions (Adeso), in consultation with other national and local nongovernmental organizations in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, has developed a position paper titled "A More Dignified and Equitable Humanitarian System: How to Truly Localize Aid" to influence the future policy direction of the humanitarian system. The paper highlights the changes that need to be implemented from the perspective of local nongovernmental organizations to create a more effective humanitarian system in the future. The paper calls for donors, international nongovernmental organizations and policy makers to put people back at the center of the humanitarian system. Adeso operates in Somalia, Kenya, and South Sudan.
