It covers seven countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Haiti, Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia and Uganda. The first round of data was collected in 2017, followed by a second round in 2018. The focus of inquiry is on progress towards reaching the broader reform goals described in the Grand Bargain. Results are reported country by country and complemented by a policy brief that pulls together findings from across all seven humanitarian programmes.” Follow link above for Round 2 surveys.
