This research contributes important evidence on the reality of predictable and flexible funding in the field and identifies recommendations for the global Grand Bargain workstream on enhanced quality of funding. Jordan and Lebanon were selected as two sample contexts, given their protracted and relatively stable crisis contexts with a degree of comparability.
With this report, VOICE has sought to identify the current challenges and opportunities of working in a nexus approach from the humanitarian NGO perspective and to support NGOs to engage with the EU on the nexus approach.
Pathways to Localisation outlines eight priority actions for partnership-based humanitarian action, and five actions for an enabling environment, for locally-led humanitarian action. The paper is informed by more than 400 humanitarian agencies – the majority of them local and national organisations – through research, piloting and the development of National Localisation Frameworks, in Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria and South Sudan. The paper outlines priority actions and a range of indicators under the areas of partnerships, capacity, financial resources, and coordination. The paper was developed as part of the Accelerating Localisation through Partnerships project implemented by Christian Aid, CARE, Tearfund, ActionAid, CAFOD and Oxfam, guided by national steering committees, and funded by the European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) over 2017-2019.
From December 2017 to May 2019, the VOICE network implemented a project funded by the Belgium Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which aimed to contribute to a more inclusive and possibly a more contextualized implementation of the Grand Bargain (GB), by fostering NGOs' and frontline responders' engagement in the Grand Bargain. In the framework of this project, several workshops and events were organised at EU and at field level. The report summarises the main findings and recommendations of these events.
The purpose of the harmonized reporting template, also called ‘8+3 template’, is to standardize, simplify and harmonize the reporting of humanitarian projects and programs. The template is desigend to cover the full range of humanitarian activities, from short-term projects to multi-annual programs. The more donors and partners use this template, the greater the effects of a reduced workload. The 8+3 template has three main sections: The first section provides basic administrative information about the project/program. The second section contains the eight questions that capture the most important aspects of the project/program. The third section contains a selection of additional questions that allow capturing more specific aspects donors may require. Up to three such additional questions can be chosen.
