This report sheds light on the local perspective on vulnerability. It is part of a series of studies that look into the localization of various gender-related issues. The report points to the mechanisms adopted by CSOs to assess vulnerability to bring together the local perspective and improve the access of the most vulnerable to the support available. The research assessed how the most vulnerable groups accessed the NAF program during COVID-19, through the perspective of local communities and CSOs. The results of the research should help develop (or update) a new vulnerability assessment tool based on the local communities understanding of vulnerability. The report makes recommendations to ensure gender-sensitive responses to COVID-19 and better-coordinated strategies between CSOs and decision-makers that would help improve the current vulnerability assessing mechanisms.
