SOIL Board Member, Tanvi Nagpal, featured in DEVEX

SOIL Board Member and Sr. Fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute at John Hopkins, Tanvi Nagpal, recently shared an opinion piece on the online media platform, Devex, titled Why localization is the only way forward in Haiti. Nagpal explains that given Haiti’s current situation, localizing development is the only practical and effective way forward as the country struggles with increased political uncertainty, violence and food and fuel shortages.

The piece highlights three actions that the donors and policymakers should take:

  1. Redefine local capacity.
  2. Support effective institutions, not projects.
  3. “Accompaniment” in crises.
