The UK's review of humanitarian aid: an agenda for radical change?

4 April 2011

Last year, the British government commissioned three independent reviews of its international assistance. Last week saw the release of the Humanitarian Emergency Response Review (HERR), looking at how the UK should respond to rapid-onset humanitarian emergencies.

ODI's Humanitarian Policy Group respond to the HERR, suggesting that if DFID takes the review on board, the changes will be felt far beyond the sphere of UK-funded aid.
