The Grand Bargain struck by more than 30 humanitarian donors and aid agencies at the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit set out to reform the aid system so it is better prepared for tackling the emergency needs of people affected by crises worldwide. Since then, Ground Truth Solutions and the OECD, with support from the German Federal Foreign Office, have endeavoured to set a baseline for tracking the impact of the Grand Bargain at the country level through the experience of affected people and aid providers.

We developed three survey instruments to track perceptions of affected people, field staff, and local partner organisations working with international aid agencies, in six countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Uganda, Somalia, and Haiti.
