Not what she bargained for? Gender and the Grand Bargain (CARE International & Action Aid UK) Ambitious plans to reform the humanitarian sector are still failing to reach grassroots women’s rights organisations or be felt by women affected by crises. As donors, UN agencies and NGOs review progress on the Grand Bargain, this paper outlines recommendations to promote women’s leadership and participation across the humanitarian reform agenda. The paper focuses on the three Grand Bargain workstreams: localisation, participation and cash. Key recommendations include: ensure ‘localised’ humanitarian funding reaches local women’s organisations and other civil society groups addressing gender issues strengthen participation of local women’s groups in humanitarian coordination across all clusters empower women to participate meaningfully and deliver on Accountability to Affected Populations and Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse match the momentum on large‐scale and harmonised cash delivery with investment in the diverse strategies required to ensure gender-responsive approaches to cash programme quality, inclusion and accountability.



BEYOND CASH: Making markets work in crisis

Markets are vital to our well-being. Even though they falter when war, violence, and natural disaster rip through communities, markets rarely collapse entirely. People find new ways to produce, exchange, and consume. Not only do they find new economic outlets: they depend on their markets, social networks, and local support systems more than they depend on external aid. Despite this, traditional aid often overlooks these market systems; it may bypass them through the direct delivery of in-kind assistance and can undermine them with supply-driven programs. The aid sector has recognized the need for change, and the growth of cash transfer programs is a critical first step in this shift. Cash transfers can enable households to purchase what they need through local actors, invest in economic opportunities, and repay debts. But cash transfers still focus on directly providing resources to people, rather than strengthening people’s capacity to access those resources themselves through local systems. The aid sector needs a new vision for crisis response—one that is market-driven, that leverages the capacities of non-aid actors in local and global economic systems, and that ultimately gives crisis-affected individuals the ability to drive their own decisions and secure their own lives and livelihoods.

The nature of humanitarian crises is changing. More people are in need and for longer. Today’s emergencies, both man-made and natural, are putting the humanitarian system under severe strain. We urgently need to invest in new approaches to protect the lives and dignity of those affected and to ensure aid is spent as efficiently as possible. This report shows why giving aid directly in the form of cash is often a highly effective way to reduce suffering and to make limited humanitarian aid budgets go further.
