Our methodology uses 9 indicators, grouped under 3 categories:

  • Access of humanitarian actors to affected population

  • Access of people in need to humanitarian aid

  • Security and physical constraints Each category is measured through proxy indicators, such as violence against personnel, denial of needs, or active hostilities.

Data is collected at the country level and may therefore not show disparities between sub-regions.
