Partnership has become a key concept in development cooperation since the mid-'80s, as development theories have evolved widely around ideas of aid, cooperation, partnership and solidarity.Working through international and local partnerships in a principled way, KSrelief provides the humanitarian sector with good practices in development cooperation to be shared across the humanitarian sector by managing and coordinating relief activities on the international level to ensure the provision of external aid in line with national interests.Partnership, capacity strengthening and localization of aid are becoming progressively prominent issues within the humanitarian sector.In that sense, KSrelief's model of humanitarian partnerships is a model that deserves analysis and discussions with the purpose of extracting lessons on the role of different development aid actors in humanitarian relief.The fact of the matter is that the grand bargain in humanitarian responses confirms a commitment from the largest humanitarian donors and aid organizations toward supporting development cooperation that involves national partners in the processes of decision-making.It is true that every development experience is unique and that there are multiple approaches to humanitarian assistance.
