AGORA – Programmatic Resources

AGORA, a joint venture between ACTED and IMPACT Initiatives, was created in 2016 to ground humanitarian and development work in local knowledge, in keeping with the motto « Think local, Act global ». 

AGORA is an area-based approach for aid planning and delivery anchored in local territories and knowledge to better support people in protracted crises or fragile contexts. It puts local people and actors at the center by using territories as the basis for the planning and delivery of assistance, and ensuring that action is guided by local knowledge and supports local structures and capacities.
