Risk in humanitarian action: towards a common approach?

Risk in humanitarian action: towards a common approach?

Tags : 

The Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) paper entitled ‘Risk in humanitarian action: towards a common approach?’ explores the range of contextual, programmatic and institutional risks involved in humanitarian action, and how these risks are viewed and managed by the humanitarian community. The underlying assumption of this paper is that adopting a common approach to risk may enable a more sophisticated under-standing of the risks inherent in a particular context, and more effective management of those risks.
