Local RCRC national society as main implementation partner
Danish Red Cross's point of entry in any given country is the local national society, which is also our main implementation partner. Our aim is to help that national society fulfill its mandate and its auxiliary role to the government. We promote national society ownership and respect the division of labour and responsibilites within Movement partnerships, as agreed in the statutes of the Movement and the Seville Agreement 2.0.
Our partnership approach emphasises alignment with the strategies and priorities of national societies, and harmonisation with their systems and procedures, while also ensuring transparency and accountability. We apply a counterpart approach, which entails that our staff work directly with national society staff. This cooperation creates a basis for continuous dialogue and learning.
To increase the efficiency and impact of our interventions, and to further the localisation agenda, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movements have engaged in reforming the way we work together. We are committed to supporting the ambition to pursue further alignment with local priorities and harmonisation with local systems and procedures.
