The Humanitarian Response Index 2011 was launched on March 7th at the Palais in Geneva, Switzerland. The event was hosted by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC).
The meeting was chaired by the IASC Deputy Chief, Mark Prasopa-Plaizier. Mirjam Sorli from UN OCHA/GENCAP and Philip Tamminga, Head of the Humanitarian Response Index, were part of the event panel.
Now in its fifth year, the Humanitarian Response Index is the world’s foremost independent instrument for measuring individual performance of donor governments against Good Humanitarian Donorship Principles. The Humanitarian Response Index provides in-depth assessments of the 23 most important donor governments to help ensure their humanitarian funding has the greatest possible impact for people in critical need of aid.
