A networked response? What can we learn from humanitarian networks in Asia? Discussion starter

Working papers

This discussion starter explores national humanitarian networks in Asia and draws out their main ideas. In many emergencies, organisations based in the affected area play a vital role: as first responders and in accessing populations beyond the reach of international actors (whether due to logistical or security constraints), estimates from 2009 suggesting that as little as 1.9 per cent of government funds to NGOs flow to organizations headquartered in affected countries (GHA 2011).
