In January 2016, the United Nations Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Humanitarian Financing (HLP) published its report Too important to fail – addressing the humanitarian financing gap, which formed the basis for the Grand Bargain negotiations in early 2016.

Statement from the ICRC and the Netherlands on sharing of risks to support the implementation of the Grand Bargain 2.0 commitments. The Statement proposes specific actions to help signatories and collective initiatives to move towards actual sharing of risks.
ActionAid has collaborated with over twenty WROs and WLOs partners in 10 countries to gather their thoughts and perspectives on how to shape and implement the Grand Bargain 2.0 so that it is more effective for women and girls. The attached policy brief compiles the findings and through their collective voices has developed key recommendations for the implementation and future of the Grand Bargain 2.0.
In 2020 and early 2021, the Caritas Internationalis humanitarian policy taskforce partnered on a research initiative to gather views on experiences of local leadership in the humanitarian response to the Covid19 pandemic.
