Guidelines and toolkits

Humanitarian programmes are increasingly carried out in locations where access is limited for humanitarian workers. Insecurity, the heightened risk of aid diversion, weakened relationships with affected communities and the risk of accidentally doing harm are challenging the humanitarian sector to adapt approaches and tools in order to deliver accountable, good-quality programmes despite the constraints.

These guidelines are about implementing the programme-quality standards of the Core Humanitarian Standard in limited access humanitarian response. They have been developed using approaches and tools tested by Oxfam, other INGOs and the UN in Afghanistan, DRC, Iraq, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. The guidelines are an operational resource to help programme designers and decision makers deliver ‘good enough’ programme quality in limited access humanitarian response.
