Guidance Notes

Building on existing and bespoke research, the findings from three “demonstrator country” missions, and discussions with Grand Bargain signatories and local actors in a series of regional and global conferences in 2018-19, the Grand Bargain Localisation Workstream issued a series of guidance notes on localisation in May 2020. These very brief notes set out priority findings, recommendations and considerations that signatories are encouraged to consider as they implement their commitments.
