From the creators of the The Humanitarian Encyclopedia:

The Humanitarian Encyclopedia is a collaborative project with humanitarian and academic partners, based on co-creation, combining theory and practice to support the growing ranks of humanitarian stakeholders in their strategic thinking, design and implementation of humanitarian responses.

It responds to the documented need to interrogate how terms and concepts used in humanitarian action are understood and applied across time, cultures, and organizations. This shall support the reflective involvement of an expanding range of stakeholders while building on the existing theoretical and empirical knowledge and practical experiences at local and regional levels.

Visit the site often and see how you can be involved in continue to build a humanitarian language.
