Policy, Advocacy and Learning

Twenty-five years ago, accountability to affected communities and people was nowhere to be seen in policy discussions in our sector. Today, the sector agrees that our responses should be accountable to affected communities and people. However, many still struggle with what concrete actions they need to take to transform their good intentions into concrete outcomes.

CHS Alliance supports and conducts research to identify and recognise best practice, improve accountability approaches, develop tools and provide a stronger evidence base on the link between accountability and higher quality humanitarian and development action. Learning is disseminated through publications, our website, conferences and workshops.

Our policy, advocacy and learning work:

  • Humanitarian Accountability Report: leading thinkers and institutions present thought-provoking solutions to move the quality and accountability agenda forward;
  • Conferences, roundtables and workshops;
  • Advocacy on behalf of our members and beyond on issues linked to quality, accountability and people management at local, national, regional and international levels, with the United Nations as well as donor agencies and governments;
  • Participation and speaking at humanitarian events such as the World Humanitarian Summit 2016;
  • Policy analysis;
  • Policy formulation, planning and implementation support.
