We humanitarians are a self-critical bunch. Independent evaluations, research studies, conferences and popular books on humanitarianism tend to focus on a bewildering array of failures, problems, challenges and frustrations. On the one hand this is a good thing as it shows we are open to changing and improving but, on the other hand, it can create a pervasive feeling of gloom and doom.

Mapping of Monitoring in Humanitarian Action (MHA)

ALNAP is embarking on a new piece of research in order to better understand monitoring of humanitarian action in policy, in practice, and how these may differ.

As an initial step ALNAP is undertaking a two year research project, mapping the current landscape of monitoring in the humanitarian sector.

This exercise aims to plot the perspectives and priorities of different actors, the purposes and uses for this data, as well as the processes, policy, procedures and standards applied to it. This will serve as a scoping study, helping to identify specific areas of MHA that could benefit from further investigation.
