Dear All,


We are pleased to share with you the Crisis Overview 2015: Humanitarian Trends and Risks 2016, a document that aims to identify long-term trends in humanitarian needs and provide scenario outlining potential change for crisis in 2016.


This report has been compiled using the data collected by the Global Emergencies Overview (GEO) over the past three years.


As this is the first attempt by ACAPS to provide longer-term analyis of crises, we would be extremely grateful to receive any feedback that you may have.

ACAPS was initially established in 2009 by a consortium of three international NGOs (HelpAge International, Merlin and The Norwegian Refugee Council).

Action Contre la Faim- ACF, The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), and Save the Children International are now forming the consortium of the project.


The consortium members have a strong field presence in major emergency settings and extensive experience in humanitarian assessments, emergency response and operational learning. They support the ACAPS project with their expertise in developing and delivering training, roster development and management, coordinated multi-agency and multi-sector assessments and targeted support to vulnerable groups.

Committed to the humanitarian reform agenda, the consortium will ensure the project remains practical and results-focused.

The partners

ACAPS believes in partnership and knowledge sharing to strengthen needs assessments capacities. Collaboration with leading research centres on humanitarian issues and other organisations involved in assessments provides the project with technical expertise to further develop and implement better multi-sector needs assessments. In addition partners support with operational learning which identifies and applies good-practice and innovative approaches to needs assessments. In order to continually improve ACAPS' approaches, regular consultations with a wide array of stakeholders such as UN agencies, Cluster representatives, international NGOs, regional bodies and academic institutions take place to share experiences and ensure complementarity with other ongoing initiatives.


ACAPS collaborates with the following partners



The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) collaborates with ACAPS on the Disaster Needs Analysis by providing information on cash transfer mechanisms of the country in question to support decision making and response planning.

The Cash Learning Partnership aims to improve the quality of emergency cash transfer and voucher programming across the humanitarian sector. CaLP is composed by five organisations: Oxfam GB, the British Red Cross, Save the Children, the Norwegian Refugee Council and Action Against Hunger / ACF International.



The cooperation between ACAPS and CartONG specifically focuses on a review related to the use of mobile device collection system within the framework of the NOMAD project.

CartONG is a French NGO whose mission is to promote the use of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and provide mapping services as well as information management for humanitarian organizations with special focus on Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons.

Columbia University


Columbia University provides technical advice and expertise to different activities of ACAPS, mainly methodology development and training materials for coordinated needs assessments.

Columbia University is one of the world's most important centers of research. It seeks to attract a diverse and international faculty and student body, to support research and teaching on global issues, and to create academic relationships with many countries and regions.



The Emergency Capacity Building Project (ECB) and ACAPS supported and strengthened the capacity of national actors to carry out joint needs assessments. They were collaborating on joints needs assessments in Bangladesh, Bolivia, Indonesia and Horn of Africa.

The Emergency Capacity Building Project has now finished. Its mission was to improve the speed, quality, and effectiveness of the humanitarian community in saving lives, improving welfare, and protecting the rights of people in emergency situations.



iMMAP and ACAPS are collaborating on improving the mapping of affected population needs at the early stage of a disaster. Through a review of existing maps, best practices will be identified and guidance will be provided on how best can crisis situation be represented for phase 1 and 2 of disasters.

iMMAP is a non-for-profit organisation that promotes, develops and implements good practices in the application of Information Management tools and methodologies to humanitarian operations.



infoasaid and ACAPS initiated a new collaboration in November 2011 with the Disaster Needs Analysis (DNA) on Niger. Both projects will continue to work together by ensuring that the future DNAs contain a specific section on the media and telecommunications landscapes of the country in question to support decision making and response planning.

infoasaid is a DFID funded consortium of the BBC World Service Trust and Internews that focuses on improving how aid agencies communicate with disaster affected communities. Among other tools for humanitarian agencies, infoasaid is producing over 20 media and telecommunications landscape guides to developing countries that are vulnerable to humanitarian crises.



JIPS (Joint IDP Profiling Service) and ACAPS are jointly developing an accessible resource facility for profiling and assessments activities. The PARK (Profiling and Assessment Resource Kit) is an online repository for different methodologies and tools used to plan and implement profiling exercises by a range of actors. The PARK was launched in February 2012.

JIPS is a service providing guidance on IDP profiling, supporting field/country teams to undertake appropriate methodologies and advising how to operationalise profiling exercises.

Karolinska Institutet


ACAPS collaborates with the Centre for Research on Health Care in Disasters based at Karolinska Institutet on developing training materials for coordinated needs assessments and on exploring new methodologies such as use of data from cell phone providers to track population movements.

Karolinska Institutet is one of the world´s leading medical universities. Its mission is to contribute to the improvement of human health through research and education.



ACAPS and MapAction started to collaborate in October 2011 with the Disaster Needs Analysis of DPRK.  In addition to providing maps for future DNAs, MapAction will work together with ACAPS on needs assessments training.

MapAction is an international NGO whose mission is to assist responders to humanitarian emergencies by providing mapped information and other services that enable rapid situational assessment and decision making.

Feinstein International Center at Tufts University


The Feinstein International Center is supporting the operational learning activities of ACAPS in order to get a better understanding of the challenges related to assessment. ACAPS and the Feinstein International Center also collaborate on the needs assessment training courses.

The Feinstein International Center develops and promotes operational and policy responses to protect and strengthen the lives and livelihoods of people living in crisis-affected and marginalized communities.

Start Network


ACAPS produces crisis reports for the the Start Network: within 12 hours of a crisis alert the ACAPS analysis team writes a Briefing Note aimed at easing decisions on fund allocations by the Start Network.

The Start Network is the new name for the Consortium of British Humanitarian Agencies. It is made up of 19 leading NGOs working together to strengthen the humanitarian aid system. The network extends to nearly 7,000 partner agencies, comprised of over a million staff working in 200 countries and territories.

The consortium works in three areas:

  • Start Fund (financing for emergency response);
  • Start Build (strengthening civil society capacity);
  • Start Beta (creating platforms for partnerships and learning).
