The 2015 State of the Humanitarian System (SOHS) report looks back at humanitarian assistance over the last three years and asks: How well is it performing?

Every three years ALNAP releases the SOHS to assess the performance of international humanitarian assistance. It does this by defining key criteria for evaluating system performance and progress. Commissioned by ALNAP and authored by Humanitarian Outcomes, the report offers a comprehensive picture of the shape and size of the system and insights into the ‘bigger picture’ of trends and performance in the sector. It incorporates perspectives from those who receive aid, as well as practitioners from across the globe and at all levels of seniority.

Read the report to find out how humanitarian system has been performing in the wake of an unprecedented level of crisis.

Featured Article: The Humanitarian Economy (IRIN)

International organizations often go to great lengths to show that they are promoting transparency and good governance in the countries in which they work, but how much do we really know about where and how emergency aid money is spent? In partnership with Local2Global Protection, IRIN takes a serious look at the size, flows, data and power structures of the humanitarian economy. IRIN identifies the “humanitarian one percent,” and examines the complex subcontracting arrangements and the quality and quantity of available data. It’s messy, complex, and shows a system badly in need of reform. Read the full IRIN report here.
