Even if the commitments can be considered as good opportunities for better implementation of localization of aid, there are still gaps in its practical scenarios. It is found that there is a gap in the quality of partnerships and how they are seen and perceived by those involved in the – multilateral and bilateral donors and INGOs. The words used by INGOs to describe their approach to partnerships and their partnership practices do not match the reality as experienced by local partners. This research, therefore, aims to: assess the overall implementation of the Grand Bargain and the Charter for Change by signatories in Ethiopia and assess the implementation challenges and opportunities faced by signatories and make recommendations based on best practice.
