Launch of the Humanitarian Accountability Report 2020

Five years since the launch of the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS), now is the time to take stock. Are we really making aid work better for crisis-affected people? The CHS Alliance’s biennial flagship publication, the Humanitarian Accountability Report (HAR) 2020 will explore this fundamental question.

Providing an evidence-based overview of accountability in the sector, the HAR 2020 will report on the current state of adherence to the CHS and what progress has been made meeting its Nine Commitments. Using information and data gathered from more than 90 aid organisations that have undertaken CHS verification, the report will uncover which Commitments are being best met and where more efforts are most needed.

The HAR 2020 launches on 6 October 2020, 15:30 CEST, on the first day of the virtual Global CHS Exchange.
