Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action (ALNAP)

In addition to looking in detail at the composition, performance and quality of humanitarian response, this new edition of the ALNAP Report compares the current results with those obtained in the previous studies. This helps to identify the main changes that have taken place and the main trends that have appeared in the last ten years. The results of humanitarian projects have been evaluated using the OECD DAC criteria, using an updated and improved methodology based on lessons learned from previous editions.

The new study also evaluates the impact of changes brought by the commitments of the World Humanitarian Summit and the Grand Bargain, particularly concerning aid localisation, resilience and inclusion.

Groupe URD has been responsible for conducting the interviews and case studies needed to write the new Report. Around one hundred interviews have been carried out throughout 2017. The interviews and case studies take place in a number of different countries (Nepal, Myanmar, Haiti, Central African Republic, Mali, Lebanon, etc.) in order cover different kinds of crises and responses: complex and long-lasting crises, migration and refugee crises, as well as rapid-onset natural disasters.

The interviews and case studies analyse the different functions of humanitarian response (rapidity of the response, resilience, protection, advocacy, etc.) and aim to highlight the main ways that the aid system has evolved.
