Dear Grand Bargain Signatories,
We are going through an important period for the Grand Bargain - as you know from the constituency-level consultations during the last few months, the Facilitation Group has been working on a proposal for the future of the Grand Bargain. While constituencies had different views on how that should happen, the Facilitation Group members worked hard to consolidate those differences and find a common and ambitious way forward. The next step will be the meeting between the Principals and the Eminent Person on 1 February 2021. But more on that in the Facilitation Group update below.
In this newsletter, you will also find updates from the workstream on reducing duplication and management costs, and from the workstream on joint and impartial needs assessments and analysis. Further below, please read the Grand Bargain in Practice stories - they importantly showcase how the Grand Bargain is being implemented at operational level.
We wish you a pleasant reading and best regards,
The Grand Bargain Secretariat
