Watchback: Operationalising AAP in the Humanitarian and Development Contexts: Lessons Learnt from Irish and Polish NGOs

Issued on

Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP) has become an integral part of the work that humanitarian and development agencies carry out in their efforts to alleviate the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable people. Yet, AAP on paper and AAP in practice can be two different things, and operationalising the approach has proved to be challenging.

This event, hosted by DSAI Civil Society Study Group on 9 April 2021, brought together practitioners and academics in AAP in humanitarian and development contexts to share their approaches, successes, challenges, and innovations with their peers. Representatives of GOAL Global, the Polish Medical Mission and the Polish Humanitarian Action shared their hands-on- experience and lessons learnt from their field work in Iraq, Jordan, South Sudan (PMM), NW Syria, Zimbabwe, and Ethiopia (GOAL), Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Kenya and Lebanon (PAH).
