The 2017 Grand Bargain signatory reports on Workstream 2 evidence some encouraging progress on meeting the 6 localisation commitments to provide more support and funding tools for national and local responders. But it is slow and much of the progress is in the initial first steps. 4 signatories did not report anything on this workstream.

Nous soussignées les organisations travaillant dans le domaine de l’aide humanitaire, encourageons toutes les initiatives de consultations qui ont été prises dans le cadre des préparatifs du Sommet Humanitaire Mondial (SHM). Nous pensons que le moment est venu pour les acteurs humanitaires de mettre à profit les recommandations formulées lors des préparatifs du SHM en s’engageant à être les moteurs du changement qui doit s’opérer dans leurs modes de travail, afin que les acteurs locaux des pays du Sud puissent jouer un rôle plus accru dans le déploiement de l’aide humanitaire.

We the undersigned organisations, working in humanitarian action welcome the extensive consultations and discussions which have been generated during the World Humanitarian Summit process. We believe that now is the time for humanitarian actors to make good on some of the excellent recommendations arising through the WHS process by committing themselves to deliver change within their own organisational ways of working so that southern-based national actors can play an increased and more prominent role in humanitarian response.
