News: Third State of the Humanitarian System Published

The 2015 edition of the State of the Humanitarian System is now available.  Here is part of the description:

"The State of the Humanitarian System (SOHS) project is an independent study that compiles the latest statistics on the size and scope of the humanitarian system and assesses overall performance and progress every few years. This edition synthesises the findings of over 350 formal evaluations and other relevant documents, 340 key informant interviews and surveys of 1,271 aid practitioners (including host-government offi›cials) and 1,181 aid recipients, covering the period 2012–2014. The humanitarian system’s performance is assessed within its core functions of responding to major sudden-onset emergencies and supporting populations in chronic crisis, as well as its less well defined roles of humanitarian advocacy and support for resilience. This assessment is made based on standard evaluative criteria for humanitarian action (suffi›ciency/coverage, relevance/appropriateness, effectiveness, connectedness, effi›ciency and coherence)."

The report, a summary and annexes can be accessed via ALNAP.  A companion micro-site is also available.
