After many hours of development, programming, reviewing content, tagging information, seeking feedback and creating exciting new functionality, we are proud to graduate our Topics pages from concept to a full-fledged feature of ReliefWeb. Now users are able to search for humanitarian information by either latest update, countries, disasters or topics.

You can easily find the topics pages by using the link on the main menu bar

Designed to make it easy for you to stay up to date in your area of humanitarian expertise, the Topics pages filter global content related to a particular theme, providing you with categorised in-depth information published on ReliefWeb. This includes global analysis, policy documents, evaluations, lessons learned, manuals and guidelines for a topic of your particular interest.

Topics pages also contain exciting new features such as interactive maps, YouTube videos, twitter streams, monitoring tools and must read articles chosen by our knowledgeable editorial staff.

Currently we are launching with the following Topics pages:

  • Health

  • Agriculture

  • Education

  • WASH

  • Food and Nutrition

In the near future we will be launching more Topics pages such as aid worker safety, protection, and gender. If you have any suggestions for a particular Topic page, feel free to contact us at our feedback forum or leave a comment below.

We are still working on perfecting our disaster type Topics pages so stay tuned to the ReliefWeb Blog for further updates. In the meantime check out our sample disaster type topic page ‘Floods’.

ReliefWeb would also like to thank everyone who participated in providing feedback through our recent surveys and other forums. With your knowledge, feedback and suggestions, we can continue to build high quality information products for the humanitarian community.
