Commissioned by ALNAP and authored by Humanitarian Outcomes, the report provides a concise and comprehensive picture of the humanitarian system and explores trends and performance in the sector. Included in the report are perspectives from all areas of humanitarian action including recipients of aid, practitioners and high-level decision-makers. Overall, it is meant as an assessment of the performance of international humanitarian assistance by defining and analysing key criteria that can help evaluate system performance and progress.
Every three years ALNAP releases a State of the Humanitarian System (SOHS) report that looks back at humanitarian assistance over that time period with a goal of responding to the question: How well is humanitarian assistance performing?
