Sustained Humanitarian Presence Project

Project completed

Studies and field research on the topic of independent and neutral humanitarian action undertaken by SDC and other relevant organisations over the last 10 years have identified several reasons why the humanitarian space is shrinking. Some of those reasons are lack of own capabilities by NGO’s to sustain an independent humanitarian presence in the field. Through the SHPP SDC, together with partners (Irish Aid) want to assist humanitarian NGO’s in selected theatres of operation to overcome some of those identified reasons in the area of soft skills.
