Program Introduction

Humanitarian action is a powerful and direct way for making an impact on millions of lives globally. This is especially true if one considers an increase in the frequency, intensity, and complexity of natural disasters and conflicts. Rise in populism, isolation, and division within countries and worldwide stand at odds with true humanitarianism. Many humanitarian organizations struggle to plan and react accordingly to the ever-changing landscape although they are constantly being called to adapt and respond to elevated demands.
