Humanitarianism in the network age

This publication explores how new ways of interacting are bringing people in need closer to people who can help. In rich and poor countries, people are connecting through technology at an accelerating pace. The report imagines how a world of increasingly informed, connected and self-reliant communities will affect the delivery of humanitarian aid. Its conclusions suggest a fundamental shift in power from capitals and headquarters to the people that aid agencies aim to assist. The included World Humanitarian Data and Trends present global and country-level data and analysis on humanitarian needs, response and trends.
