Monitoring the Grand Bargain commitment on transparency

Development Initiatives works with the Grand Bargain transparency workstream to support improvements to the transparency of humanitarian response and help signatories meet their Grand Bargain commitment.

At the World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016 a number of donor governments, multilaterals, UN agencies and non-governmental organisation (NGO) networks agreed the Grand Bargain, which included a set of proposals and commitments to increase the transparency of humanitarian financing.

As a first step, the Grand Bargain signatories committed to publishing timely, transparent, harmonised and open high-quality data on humanitarian funding and activities within two years of the Summit, and they identified the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) as the basis for a common standard.

Our project works towards two main outcomes by June 2018. These are:

  1. Increased understanding by the humanitarian community of progress by Grand Bargain signatories in publishing to the IATI Standard, and the incentives and barriers to increased publication.
  2. Increased capacity of Grand Bargain signatories to publish and use timely, transparent, harmonised and open high-quality data on humanitarian funding.
