Liz Steele and Mark Brough share DI's experience of developing a new Covid-19 data visualisation, including incentives for organisations to improve the quality of the data they are publishing.
The Grand Bargain recognised that greater data-driven transparency is essential for building trust, improving the visibility and accountability of donors and aid organisations and enabling a more coordinated and effective response towards affected populations.
The World Bank Group and the Netherlands today launched a new prototype tool to visualise data on the international response to Covid-19. The tool has been developed by Development Initiatives as part of the Grand Bargain’s transparency workstream.
This Guide aims to help orient people supporting the COVID-19 response to integrate psychosocial support skills into their daily work, thereby making a difference to the well-being of people they come into contact with during the pandemic. More specifically, the Guide is intended for health and social workers; emergency responders; people working in food stores, public transport, funeral parlours and pharmacies; employers and managers; and people who are providing support to vulnerable family members or members of their community.
Four years on, the Grand Bargain remains for a number of actors the reference for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the humanitarian action, having a wider impact in terms of fostering a more cohesive and collaborative approach. WFP continues to play a constructive and strategic role in the implementation of the Grand Bargain, in particular through its co-leadership of the cash-based programming workstream which high performance stood out again in 2019.
