The State of Surge Capacity in the Humanitarian Sector 2015
For the transforming surge capacity project
This research report is one part of the Transforming Surge Capacity Project of the Start Network. The project aims to improve the capacity of humanitarian organisations to scale up resources for emergency response, and to pilot and build evidence of ways of working that are collaborative and locally focused and which engage with a range of different stakeholders involved in humanitarian response. Led by ActionAid, the project brings together eleven agencies – Action Against Hunger, CAFOD, CARE, Christian Aid, International Medical Corps, Islamic Relief, Muslim Aid, Plan, Save the Children and Tearfund. CHS Alliance is a technical partner for the project and is responsible for this research. The Communicating with Disaster Affected Communities (CDAC) Network is also a technical partner.
