Putting affected people at the centre of humanitarian response: Rhetoric or reality?

Tues 7 October  |  4:00 - 5:30pm  |  ODI (Live-stream)

Humanitarians are increasingly interested in defining what exactly is meant by terms such as engagement, accountability and participation, and looking at how these ideas can be turned into reality on the ground.

ALNAP's 29th Annual Meeting in March 2014 provided a forum for these discussions. Nearly 200 participants representing around 100 organisations from 40 countries met in Ethiopia to discuss key issues constraining engagement and accountability to affected people and to share good practice. The result? A new ALNAP study distilling that global conversation. Join ALNAP and the authors of this study to continue the conversation started in Ethiopia.

'We are here' - IFRC's experience with communication and feedback channels for affected populations in Haiti

This case study outlines the IFRC's work in Haiti following the 2010 Earthquake, focusing on their use of technology in two-way communication and feedback processes.  It shows the experience of the IFRC's Return and Relocation Programme, which supports people displaced by the Earthquake to move out from the crowded camps and informal settlements into safe housing.

This resource is part of a larger ALNAP and CDA research project on the effectiveness of feedback mechanisms for affected populations in humanitarian contexts.

What happened to humanitarian funding?

Sophia Swithern, Programme Leader at GHA

What can we learn from recent trends in humanitarian assistance to inform the difficult daily decisions that donors and delivery agencies are currently facing? What was the financial response to the challenges of 2013’s crises? Did the budgets match the needs? In the Global Humanitarian Assistance Report 2014, released on
10 September, we’ve brought together the latest available data to shed light on these questions.
