Secure Access in Volatile Environments (SAVE) is a three-year programme of applied research on maintaining humanitarian access in the world’s most challenging operational contexts. The overall goal of the programme is to contribute to solutions for providing effective and accountable humanitarian action amid high levels of insecurity. This will be achieved through improving the evidence base with primary research and producing new practical guidance.

The research programme will be implemented through three linked components:

1) access: quantifying and mapping humanitarian coverage in relation to security conditions;
2) effectiveness: identifying the key determinants for enabling quality aid interventions amid insecurity; and
3) monitoring and evaluation: providing practical lessons and guidance for improved learning and accountability in the most challenging environments.

The SAVE research programme completed a six-month Inception Phase in March 2014. The summary Inception Report covers the findings of the Inception period and presents the strategy for the Implementation Phase.
