While bilateral funding between implementing organizations and donors can reduce transfer and administrative costs, such direct funding relationships can sometimes lead to challenges for NGOs. Different rules and requirements, pre-qualification requirements, delayed disbursements, and overly restrictive budget lines are just some of the issues frequently faced by NGOs.
Nonetheless, the Grand Bargain aims at bringing donors closer to implementing organizations and overcoming these challenges. At the same time, emerging donors are becoming increasingly important sources of funding for humanitarian organizations. In order to better understand this changing context for NGO access to bilateral funding, join us for the fourth session of the learning stream on humanitarian financing, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP.
