Quality and sector professionalization

How can communities in crisis hold humanitarian responders accountable? How can we maximize quality and ensure that humanitarian services delivered by an increasingly wide and diverse group of responders meet agreed universal minimum standards?

H2H organizations focused on quality and sector professionalization improve learning across the sector by establishing competencies, standards and systems, and by directly supporting organizations involved in capacity building. They also build resilience, by supporting communities to develop life-saving skills which help them prepare for, respond and recover from natural and man-made disasters.

Members offer a range of technical support to humanitarian responders at all levels. This includes MEAL, research, policy, standard development, organizational development and training across all areas of programme design, management and delivery.

Humanitarian minimum standards are a shared reference point for all responders.
