Good Humanitarian Donorship
The Humanitarian Response Index
The Humanitarian Response Index (HRI) is the world’s foremost independent tool for measuring the individual performance of government donors against Good Humanitarian Donorship Principles.
The Humanitarian Response Index provides an independent assessment of donor performance, which can assist governments in ensuring that their humanitarian funding has the greatest possible impact for people in critical need of aid.
The Climate Vulnerability Initiative
Climate Vulnerability Monitor
DARA emphasises the varying impact of climate change on human society and points to the most effective measures to reduce that impact in a major new global report. The Climate Vulnerable Monitor is co-published by DARA and the Climate Vulnerable Forum, a partnership of seriously affected nations initiated in 2009 by the Government of the Maldives. The Initiative also supports strong climate leadership among most vulnerable countries.
The Disaster Risk Reduction Initiative
Risk Reduction Index
This initiative looks at the factors and conditions that contribute to the generation of risk. Based on extensive local consultation and analysis, the Risk Reduction Index provides clear guidance for effective risk reduction in vulnerable and hazard-prone areas across the world.
