World Humanitarian Summit commitment to ‘Leave(ing) no one behind’ (United Nations, 2016 p. 7) in humanitarian response brings closer localisation and inclusion of all in the communities. Nevertheless, there has not been an initiative that capitalised the role of persons with disabilities and older people in localised response, and encourage institutional partnerships with humanitarian organisation. Consequently, humanitarian response often disregards their inclusion. The PIONEER model addresses the gaps in institutional capacity and awareness of OPDs, OPAs and humanitarian actors in inclusive locally-led humanitarian response by creating spaces for knowledge-to-action co-creation to address barriers to inclusion.
The project proposes the PIONEER mechanism that is built on the success of “localisation of aid” concept introduced through the Grand Bargain agreement (IASC,n.d.), underpinned by the spirit of participation revolution of people with disabilities and older people through equal partnerships with local humanitarian actors.

As such, the innovation aims to improve inclusion, ethics, quality and accountability of humanitarian programmes by creating spaces for OPDs and humanitarian organisations to co-create, deliver, and evaluate humanitarian programmes.
