The growing and changing landscape of humanitarian affairs means there is mounting pressure to reform and improve the effectiveness of humanitarian interventions. In recognition of this, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has announced the first ever World Humanitarian Summit to be held in Istanbul, Turkey in 2016, which aims to set an agenda to keep humanitarian action fit for purpose.
International law creates obligations on governments to respect, protect, and promote fundamental human rights and provide humanitarian protections in times of conflict. International human rights and humanitarian protections codified in treaties, customary law, declarations, and other international norms all provide important protections for individuals and groups. These protections are no more important than in times of natural and manufactured disasters, but it is during these crises that these protections are especially threatened.
Logistics is one of the most critical components of successful humanitarian assistance. Delivering the right assistance to the right beneficiaries at the right time requires both skills and an understanding of the supply chain. Logisticians must continually add to their knowledge and learn the latest best practices in the field. This course explains logistics, explores the ways that logistics can affect humanitarian support, and gives students an opportunity to analyze case studies and develop methods for improving delivery of support.

In any project that is implemented by an organization, Monitoring and evaluation play a key role in improving the success of that project. Effective project monitoring helps managers in making appropriate decisions in their everyday activities and ensuring that projects are executed according to plans and can be modified when necessary. Project evaluation helps project managers in understanding and demonstrating the outcome and results of their efforts, identify the best course of action for achieving their goals and document lessons learned in order to improve future programs.
