Field perspectives on the Grand Bargain
Ground Truth Solutions is working with the OECD secretariat to provide a field perspective on the so-called Grand Bargain, a package of reforms that more than 50 humanitarian donors and aid agencies have signed since it was adopted at the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit.
The research looks at progress against the Grand Bargain’s goals from the perspective of affected people and field staff involved in humanitarian operations. It covers seven countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Haiti, Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia and Uganda. The first round of data was collected in 2016 and 2017, followed by a second round in 2018.
The focus of inquiry is on progress towards reaching the broader reform goals described in the Grand Bargain. Results are reported country by country and complemented by a policy brief that pulls together findings from across all seven humanitarian programmes.
In 2017, national and local organisations provided feedback on their experience of working with international partners. Their views are included in the relevant country reports.
