One of the highlights of the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit was the Grand Bargain: A Shared Commitment to Better Serve People
in Need. Thirty representatives of OECD donors and aid agencies produced a package of reforms – 51 commitments – to make
humanitarian financing and response more efficient and effective.
Other significant commitments were also made at the Summit – including on delivering better results for Middle Income Countries in
crisis, and for crises in urban environments.
The challenge for OECD donors is to make good on those commitments: turning promises into better quality humanitarian money -
money that reaches those in need, to provide what they need, when they need it, in the most effective and efficient way.
