To meet its Grand Bargain commitments, the Start Fund sets aside one per cent (1%) of its annual disbursement to grant funding to learning initiatives related to funded responses, which go beyond operational project level, for Start Network members to strengthen humanitarian response. The aim of this grant is to ensure that lessons from the initial response are captured, disseminated, and used by the agency and other actors in the humanitarian sector. Funding is contingent on the awarded agency, or agencies, agreeing to share key learning with Start Network members and other relevant audiences.
