The Grand Bargain recognises that greater data-driven transparency is essential for building trust, improving visibility and accountability of donors and aid organisations, and for enabling a more coordinated and effective response towards affected populations.
Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the Charter4Change coalition and Accelerating Localisation Through Partnership consortium collaborated on an analysis of reports against the Localisation Workstream provided by the wider range of Grand Bargain signatories. They highlight 5 examples of good or promising practice that might be built upon; they then note 5 continuing challenges. Finally, they suggest 6 recommendations on ways forward.
