New Working Paper | Improving Humanitarian Coordination: Themes and recommendations

Whilst the current model of coordination is fairly effective at enhancing cooperation and supporting good practice on the ground, it's less good at addressing ‘strategic’, response-wide issues.

Earlier this year ALNAP brought together experts in coordination from inside and outside the humanitarian sector to ask how this could be improved.

'Improving Humanitarian Coordination', ALNAP's latest working paper, presents the themes discussed at the meeting, and sets out actionable recommendations.

What are the practical implications of locally-led responses in acute conflicts?

On 29 December, ALNAP and MSF convened a panel of expert observers and practitioners to discuss and debate the operational challenges to locally-led responses in conflict and highly politicised environments.

Informed by new research from MSF the discussion asked: what are the practical implications of locally-led responses in acute conflicts? What are the key issues to overcome? How can we ensure that locally-led responses conform with key humanitarian principles?

Stepping back: understanding cities and their systems

Urban disasters differ in some fundamentally important ways from rural disasters. In recent decades the rapid increase in the number of people living in cities has forced the humanitarian community to reconsider how best to respond. Recent research has identified the importance of working within existing systems and with local stakeholders in urban humanitarian response. Our new research seeks to understand: what is meant by urban systems and stakeholders, who is trying to understand what about urban systems and stakeholders and how, why this understanding is important, and how effective are existing tools/guidance in providing information about urban systems and stakeholders?
