HNPW Key Takeaways ICR

HNPW Session: Recovering costs sharing: An important step in rebalancing power and creating a more inclusive system
This panel session explored indirect recovery costs (ICR) and how they are shared with local and national actors. It is important that these power inequalities are addressed as ICR sharing is a tangible step to have a better share of power and push toward a locally-led humanitarian system
