Global humanitarian reform

At the global level, we provide people affected by crisis with practical ways to assess and influence humanitarian practice. How do people see cash transfers relative to other forms of aid? How could provision of cash be improved? What are we learning about progress towards the participation revolution, and how can we get aid agencies to listen more closely to the views of affected communities? By discussing hot humanitarian topics with those directly affected by crisis, and aggregating their views from thousands of conversations across the humanitarian space, we offer vulnerable communities a powerful way to improve humanitarian performance and hold aid providers to account.

Field perspectives on the Grand Bargain

As part of a far reaching effort to reform the humanitarian system, Ground Truth Solutions is working with the OECD secretariat to give people affected by humanitarian crisis more of a say in assessing progress. The focus is on the changes agreed by signatories to the Grand Bargain at the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016. The views of humanitarian field staff are also included in the research.

Humanitarian Voice Index

Ground Truth Solutions is currently developing the Humanitarian Voice Index (HVI), a global database and advocacy platform intended to inform stakeholders within and beyond the humanitarian system about the views of affected people. The project is funded by the Conrad Hilton Foundation.

Cash Barometer

The potential of cash transfer programming has been demonstrated many times over. But how does the humanitarian “cash revolution” present itself to its intended beneficiaries? What concerns do affected people have, and how can their perspectives help inform a more effective roll-out of cash-based assistance? To find out, we partnered with the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) to launch the Cash Barometer.
