Grand Aspirations: Dutch Relief Alliance and the Grand Bargain 2.0
Over the years, the DRA has delivered humanitarian aid to more than 4 million people in 23 crises worldwide, working together with more than 100 local organisations.

Dutch Relief Alliance initiates two new Acute Crisis Responses in Kenya and Ethiopia
In response to severe droughts and food insecurity in the Horn of Africa, the Dutch Relief Alliance will initiate two new Acute Crisis Responses in Kenya and Ethiopia to provide urgent humanitarian food assistance to communities in affected regions. The Acute Responses are funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will remain active for the next 6 months. DRA Partners are already active in the region, supporting communities affected by drought in Somalia.
Dutch Relief Alliance and TeamUp work together for Psychosocial Support to children in Sub-Saharan Africa
Sub-Saharan Africa is the world’s most active conflict region. These wars and armed conflicts have caused millions to flee their homes and seek refuge in other countries. Around 2.5 million people, of which the majority are children, run the risk of developing psychological issues. DRA and TeamUp worked together to provide psychosocial support to children in South Sudan.

DRA Innovation Fund – Proposal Reviewed by External Committee
The DRA Innovation Fund (DIF) had an exciting milestone in the last week of June! The 16 submitted Concept Notes under the current Innovation Call, were pitched to an external Review Committee – after which a review took place that selected 8 of the 16 concept notes for the full proposal phase later this summer. All concept notes touch upon challenges in the humanitarian sector on the topic of ‘Safety & Protection’. This video is a recap of the review days. Want to know more? Watch also our previous two videos in the DIF Call process.
DRA Innovation Fund (DIF) Call 2019 on ‘Safety & Protection’
The DRA Innovation Working Group is inviting all interesting partners (other humanitarian organisations, corporates, social enterprises, governments, universities, knowledge institutions etc.) to reach out to DRA organisations when there is a connection to one of the published challenges.
How can we better facilitate communities to drive the design and implementation of the responses to their safety and protection challenges?
The Dutch Relief Alliance partners are looking for innovative ways in which affected communities can be more in the lead of the humanitarian aid offered by organisations. They are looking for solutions that enable two-way communication, accountability mechanisms and human centred design solutions.
