The preliminary findings of Component 1 of "Secure Access in Volatile Environments" of the "Secure Access in Volatile Environments (SAVE)" research project are beginning to emerge, shedding new light on how humanitarian access is affected by insecurity. While it is well understood that access is reduced and constrained in violent environments, there has never been an attempt to measure these effects – in part because the humanitarian footprint itself has never been fully quantified. Component 1 is attempting to fill this evidence gap.
