Will the U.S. NGO commitments really bring about meaningful change to the lives of affected people?

The announcement of commitments is only one step. The true change will come in how they will be implemented. We must ensure that we develop a monitoring plan, holding ourselves accountable to the promises that we make. We are open to new approaches, and adaptable to ensuring they are context-specific and evidence-informed.

Above all, we must ensure that we put affected people at the center of decision-making from the start. Some commitments will require us to change how we work internally; some will require how we work with affected people or other stakeholders. All require change, incremental or instant, and this will be monitored by members and shared with InterAction.
