We use the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality & Accountability which is a measurable and verifiable standard to improve aid.

Verifying performance

Our verification scheme produces data that is critical in helping organisations understand the extent to which they have applied the Core Humanitarian Standard, and identify opportunities for improvement. Taken collectively, the data also shows us important trends for the sector. See how verified organisations are scoring, on average, against the 9 commitments of the CHS.
