This research aimed to improve the monitoring of humanitarian assistance in insecure environments with a focus on Afghanistan, South Central Somalia, South Sudan and Syria. It had two main goals: first, to assess available options for aid agencies t monitor assistance given the constraints that insecurity entails, and second, to identify principles of good practice and particular aspects where monitoring approaches could be improved.

This report is part of the Secure Access in Volatile Environments (SAVE) research programme. The overall goal of this three-year programme  is to contribute to solutions for providing effective and accountable humanitarian action amid high levels of insecurity. This report was funded by UK Aid. However, the views expressed do not necessarily represent the UK Government’s official policies.
