29th ALNAP Annual Meeting
Groupe URD has been an active member of ALNAP (the Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance) since its creation. We took part in its 29th annual meeting in Addis Abeba on 11 and 12 March 2014. The discussions this year focused on the question of participation, the central theme being “Engagement of crisis-affected people in humanitarian action”. Based on numerous studies on the question of participation and humanitarian aid in urban contexts, Groupe URD facilitated the workshop “Engaging urban communities in humanitarian response”. We also took part in the day of exchange and skills development for evaluators organized by ALNAP on 10 March, as well as the network members’ day on 13 March.
During the event, the report co-written with the British Red Cross, "Urban Preparadness: Lessons from the Kathmandu Valley", was presented.
