What has been achieved to date?
Currently (June 2018), the workstream is focusing on
To a large extent, the work of the co-convenors and the workstream is accomplished. The focus now must be on the implementation of the recommendations for action.
These include recommendations for donors and aid organisations in support of organisation-level participation and recommendations for donors and aid organisations in support of collaborative multi-organisation participation.
NGO engagement in the implementation of these recommendations is essential to progress the Participation Revolution, as NGOs collectively have the biggest operational footprint, and operate in proximity to people affected by crisis.
Your engagement is an organisational commitment to participation, which translates in country-level responses which are influenced by what affected people are saying they need and want. You can demonstrate that your responses are influenced by what affected people are telling you.
Your country-level programmes collaborate with other humanitarian actors to ensure that affected people have coherent means to influence the decision-making of the different humanitarian organisations which are providing them with assistance and protection. You demonstrate how you collaborate with others in terms of participation and how this contributes to your own operational decision-making.
You engage with the co-convenors of the Participation Revolution workstream to share your experiences, challenges and learnings, to inform and influence Grand Bargain signatories and hopefully also benefit from their relevant experience.
