HPG Publishes Report on Humanitarian Needs Assessment


The Humanitarian Policy Group has synthesized information from a report on needs assessments and decision making in the international humanitarian system into a briefing paper that explores how responses by the international humanitarian system can be judged proportionate and appropriate to the needs of those affected by disaster and conflict. It offers a critical examination of current practices in needs assessment and decision-making, looking at key elements of the current system and how it functions as a whole.
