I really resonate with your work and approach. In our long-term partnership with https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/bridgebuilder2/ideas/wan-fambul we have been focused on how to create space for local leadership in peacebuilding and development - and especially at how to do that in a way that is strategic and systemic. In other words - what are the structures, systems, processes and practices that support working this way - from the inside-out. And how can we grow this way of working, and the system that supports it - whether it's domestic or international? I think there might be some useful cross learning that could happen!
As a funder/external myself, I'm especially interested in fostering the conversation about what it requires of funders/externals to fund/support/accompany work from the inside-out. Making the framework that supports working from the inside-out more visible, in different settings, could help open up the conversation on how to have better funding approaches.
