 National Alliance of Humanitarian Actors
Speakers at a sharing conference yesterday called for shifting the power (localising humanitarian response system) as it would ensure better humanitarian response during any emergency or disaster scenario. Local actors should be empowered so that they can effectively take part in humanitarian actions.

Terming local actors as the first and main responders after a disaster strikes, the speakers said they know the context and language, and are able to negotiate access. The project has already created a platform named 'National Alliance of Humanitarian Actors (NAHAB)' and it is being supported by 44 Local/National NGOs so far over the last one year. Shifting the Power (StP) stands up for a change in mindset and business models in the humanitarian system as a whole at the governmental, national, local and international NGO level. Shifting the Power, a global initiative of six international NGOs (ActionAid, CAFOD, Christian Aid, Oxfam, Tearfund and Concern Worldwide), led by Christian Aid in Bangladesh and supported by DFID through START Network, started its journey in Bangladesh in 2015.
