After a successful launch of the caucus on the margins of the Annual Meeting, the caucus co-chairs, the EP Office and NEAR, developed a detailed strategy for the work to be undertaken in the coming months.
Please see below the statement from A4EP on the ocassion of World Humanitarian Day, calling on the humanitarian community to pay special attention to the local humanitarian actors who are on the frontline but often work without adequate compensation, social security benefits and income security.
We are pleased to share with you the final outcome document of the caucus on the role of intermediaries, which includes commitments for the organisations with an intermediary role, local/national actors, and funding partners/donors. The document was endorsed at the closing of the caucus on 17 July 2022 by A4EP, EU/DG ECHO, Germany, IFRC, NEAR, SCHR/World Vision, Switzerland, UNHCR, and UNICEF.
We are pleased to share with you a letter from the EP Jan Egeland. Building on the very productive Annual Meeting and the concrete individual and collective actions that the Signatories committed to, EP Jan Egeland calls for renewed support and energy to ensure we deliver on our common objectives for Grand Bargain 2.0 by next summer.
On Tuesday, 12 July 2022, several humanitarian actors made new commitments to improve the quality and amount of humanitarian funding. These build upon prior commitments made with the establishment of the Grand Bargain in 2016, as well as a growing body of research and evidence demonstrating the efficiency gains multi-year funding can bring, particularly to frontline implementers.
