Position paper - Grand Bargain Equal partners not only passengers

The A4EP, which is a network of organisations committed to strengthen the humanitarian architecture, has taken an advocacy position to positively influence the debate and transformation of the humanitarian system. A4EP urges the GB signatories and the secretariat to work in a more open and transparent manner, and in the spirit of equitable partnership, which is espoused in the GB. We urge the localisation workstream co-conveners to be more transparent in their decision-making and embrace more local actors to make it truly representative. Most of its meetings should be held in aid-recipient countries, not in Western capitals. The members of A4EP are ready to take their responsibility and work with the GB secretariat and the localisation workstream to achieve this.
