A comprehensive breakdown of multi-year humanitarian funding, looking at long-term trends in donors, recipients and earmarking. Are Grand Bargain recommendations being met?
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.
This report is based on an analysis of logistics practices in the humanitarian sector and also considers progress in the private sector, which has put efficiency at the heart of its logistics strategies for a long time. Logistics in the private sector has indeed, for the most part, moved towards the outsourcing and pooling of logistics services, even between competing companies, with the double objective of reducing operational costs and increasing end customer satisfaction levels. The report recommends a change in operational strategy, moving from a model of fundraising and using funds to a model of fundraising and optimising these funds. One key element of this paradigm shift is the focus placed on planning in all areas of humanitarian logistics. In this respect, the question of donor funding is key. If funds are allocated based on anticipation instead of reaction to humanitarian needs, it would allow for a significant reduction in operating costs, and a more flexible and appropriate response to changing conditions in the field. This would also allow for a more strategic approach to emergency response thanks to greater emphasis on planning. A collaborative approach leads to a sustainable logistics model in the medium term and must involve strong commitment from all partners involved.
This study briefly examines World Vision's implementation of Multi-Year Planning and Funding (MYPF). Through interviews and document reviews of World Vision programmes in Jordan, Mozambique, Somalia, South Sudan and Zimbabwe, it seeks to understand the benefits of MYPF, as pledged by GHD donors.
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.
Multi-year humanitarian financing (MYHF) is widely assumed to bring with it a variety of benefits. However, such benefits have rarely been tested beyond theoretical conjecture. This study explores when and where MYHF can have the greatest effect, as well as identifying the investments and enabling conditions required at the organisational and systemic levels for it to live up to its potential.
