The humanitarian system is struggling to respond to the weight of today’s many complex crises – Syria, Iraq, South Sudan and the Central African Republic to name a few.
It has never been more important to understand and improve how the system works with alternative humanitarian responders.
This drive has been at the heart of HPG's research, policy engagement and public affairs work.
Over the year, we’ve reflected on the diverse histories of humanitarian action, helped improve responses to crises and highlighted the rise of new – or newly acknowledged – humanitarian responders.
Our Annual Review showcases the highlights of our work over the year. For a more detailed account, see the longer Annual Report.
