What has been achieved to date?
Currently (February 2020), the workstream is focusing on
Because without a change in the way individual NGOs and agencies design and deliver their programs, participation will remain theoretical. The Frameworks are agreed and exist – its up to humanitarians on the ground to make them real.
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.
If you are a Grand Bargain signatory, you report your progress on participation using the agreed indicators. If you are not, you use them to report internally, to your donors, and to affected people themselves.
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.
