Humanitarian Response Index 2011: Addressing the gender challenge
Mainstreaming gender, ensuring aid is focused on needs alone and investing in prevention and preparedness are all cost-effective measures. Putting the focus back where it belongs- on meeting the needs and respecting the capacities and priorities of affected populations- is the best way to maximize donor contributions and impact.
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.
