What is an Observatory?

In order to be as close as possible to field realities and promote lessons and good practice, Groupe URD has already run two Observatories (Afghanistan from 2005 to 2008 and Chad from 2009 to 2012).
Observatories of this kind provide actors with an overview of key issues, generate new ideas and are a recognized source of expertise on both sector-based issues (Nutrition, Food Security, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, etc.) and cross-cutting issues (LRRD, Environment, Protection, Disaster Risk Reduction, etc.).
