Programa Piloto de Localizacion de Start Fund

Start Network ha desarrollado un marco de diligencia debida por niveles para permitir que la red incorpore más organizaciones locales como miembros, sin dejar de cumplir con los donantes y garantizando la confianza en toda la red. En marzo de 2020, se estableció un proyecto piloto para evaluar el impacto de la financiación directa de los miembros que habían cumplido con un nivel particular en el marco de diligencia debida escalonada. A través del piloto, estos miembros tuvieron acceso a un máximo de 30.000 libras esterlinas a través del Start Fund.

A path forward for accountability

The decisions and actions of humanitarian actors have a profound effect on people affected by crisis. But how are they able to hold humanitarian agencies to account for their actions? Affected people need an effective voice in the decision-making process in order to ensure accountable, contextualised and need-based responses. In this learning paper, we explore the opportunities and challenges of a Mechanism for Accountability to Affected Populations that was trialled by Start Fund Bangladesh in 2020.

Development of Mechanism for Accountability to the Affected Population in Rapid Response (Bangla)

Humanitarian actors play an important role in disaster response in Bangladesh. As such, their decisions and actions can have a profound effect on the daily lives of disaster affected people. However, the accountability framework being used by different humanitarian agencies are different and to some extent inadequate to hold humanitarian agencies accountable to the affected people in rapid response. Affected people lack an effective voice in the decision-making process of the humanitarian agencies. Hence, new tools and mechanisms are needed at the local and national level to make the humanitarian actors more accountable to affected people and communities.
