Listening and reacting to people during a  crisis is a good way to make sure aid is going to the right place and is more appropriate. But its tough because it challenges the traditional 'top down' way of doing business. This report from the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016 under theme 'People at the Centre', illustrates some ways this is being done and is helping to reform aid.
