  1. Evaluating Humanitarian Action

    Humanitarian action is any activity taken with the objective of saving lives, alleviating suffering, and maintaining human dignity during and after human-induced crises and disasters resulting from natural hazards. Humanitarian action also includes prevention and preparation for these.  Humanitarian action includes both the provision of assistance (such as food, healthcare and shelter) and the protection of crisis-affected populations from violations of their rights (as defined by human rights law, international humanitarian law, and refugee law, see ALNAP, 2016).
