The Grand Bargain Explained
An ICVA briefing paper
March 2017

ICVA, a global network of humanitarian NGOs dedicated to principled and effective humanitarian action, has created this Grand Bargain briefing paper to support NGOs (and all humanitarian actors) better understand and engage in the Grand Bargain. This briefing paper forms part of ICVA’s humanitarian financing learning stream.

  • - What is the Grand Bargain?
  • - Why was it created?
  • - What does it hope to achieve?
  • - What are the Grand Bargain work streams and how can I participate? 

"The humanitarian system must move away from a centralized, command and control, one-system-fits-all approach to an ecosystem of diverse actors, where frontline responders receive adequate & timely resources".
