In September 2014 Groupe URD in partnership with ALNAP ran the 9th Autumn School on Humanitarian Aid. This provided an opportunity for the invited quality and accountability experts, humanitarian organisations, donors and academics to reflect on the quality issues affecting the sector. It was also a chance to review current initiatives and discuss the hopes that they have raised and their limits.

Open space discussions allowed the participants to take a step back from current developments in order to look at the problems that were actually trying to be solved. This document presents a summary of the latest developments from these initiatives as well as the key points from the debates. It provides an appraisal of the different facets of the problem of quality in the sector.
