What is the Grand Bargain and how does it connect?

The Grand Bargain started as a parallel process, exploring how to raise more funds for the world’s growing humanitarian needs. After the release of the report of the High Level Panel on Humanitarian Financing, a 30 person ‘sherpa’ process was launched with 15 donor, 10 UN/IOM, 2 RCRC movement and 3 NGO consortia involved. The result of this process has been a document that outlines 10 commitment areas, framed by a chapeau that highlights the importance of mutual respect, a peer approach and the importance of benefits being shared at all levels of implementation.
