How can we better mitigate and share risk together?
Since the first round of Grand Bargain negotiations in February 2016, NGOs have voiced that the Grand Bargain does not adequately address the issues of risk.
Without addressing the underlying issues, Grand Bargain commitments made to localization, reduced burdensome donor conditions, and other elements cannot be achieved.
In the current context of high scrutiny over fraud, safeguarding and counter-terrorism, the systems have a low tolerance for risk. Donors are under increasing domestic pressure to justify the use of humanitarian funds and, as a consequence, programming becomes more risk-averse and donors’ reporting requirements tend to limit the availability and quality of funding.
