Accountability to affected populations (AAP) is an essential part of good humanitarian programming. But while some organisations may integrate it well into their own operations, people do not live in silos and their needs and priorities are regularly cut across different programs. As a result, they are often faced with confusing and overlapping feedback and engagement systems. Collective approaches to AAP seek to address this by focusing on the overall humanitarian response and putting people rather than projects at the centre.
Building on the operational research on Communication and Community Engagement conducted by the Humanitarian Policy Group at ODI, as well as its ongoing work around inclusion, this webinar will consider some of the lessons emerging from this research and explore how such approaches can be encouraged, particularly by leadership at country level.
