The Humanitarian Accountability Partnership (www.hapinternational.org) does good work – they provide us with practical guidance on how to transform those nice little paragraphs we’ve included in our project proposals or emergency response funding appeals that talk about how we will be accountable to the communities we aim to support. We always have good intentions – but there is always a struggle, always a few hiccups. HAP shows us how to make our projects accountable – moving beyond the idea into the ‘doing’ part of it. Please take a look at the videos and tools available at: www.hapinternational.org/resources/hap-videos.aspx
While you’re at it, check out www.worldhumanitariansummit.org where some really great people are working hard to take all of the important lessons we’ve learned during humanitarian response and actually do something with them.
