Agenda of the Grand Bargain Workshop: A Lebanese NGOs perspective in the Grand Bargain implementation
VOICE workshop in Paris on the Grand Bargain and Simplification
The report of the Grand Bargain workshop in Somalia that was organised by VOICE, the Somalia NGO Consortium and ICVA. The aim of the workshop was to share understanding and perspectives on the implementation of the Grand Bargain and fostering space for NGOs operating in Somalia to bring a field perspective into the discussions.
The Grand Bargain Task Force organised the event "The Grand Bargain: implementing a humanitarian deal to leave no one behind" at the European Development Days 2017 on 8 June 2017. Here is the summary note of the session.
This report is a summary of the key messages and main outcomes of the workshop on cash organised by VOICE in the framework of its Grand Bargain project funded by the Belgian MFA. Participants explored the role and added value of NGOs in large scale cash transfer programmes all along the program cycle from needs-assessment to monitoring but also in relation to coordination.
The purpose of this paper is to highlight through current practices and examples the interest for both ECHO and its partners in implementing a multiyear planning and funding approach and to demonstrate which current challenges could be overcome by doing so.
The Localisation workstream in the Grand Bargain (GB) generates high expectations and enthusiasm and is expected to contribute significantly to the vision to “Leave No One Behind” as set in the Agenda for Humanity. Through this paper the Grand Bargain Task Force wishes to initiate a conversation with ECHO on localisation and to explore optimal approaches to achieving the 6 commitments of Workstream.
