This working paper provides an analysis of economic resilience at the national level, presenting a broad picture of changes in resilience to climate extremes over a 42 year period. It focuses on 12 countries in the Sahel, East Africa and Asia that are part of the UK Government funded resilience programme Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED).
The special feature of this edition of Humanitarian Exchange focuses on gender-based violence (GBV) in humanitarian crises.
This edition of Humanitarian Exchange, co-edited with Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) Research Fellow Ashley Jackson, features humanitarian negotiations. In many contexts, negotiations with a wide array of actors – both state and non-state – are essential to gaining access to populations in need of assistance. This issue looks at field experiences of undertaking humanitarian negotiations, the challenges and compromises involved and the resources and tools that have been developed to support more effective engagement.
This review is concerned with the financing arrangements for programmes that address acute malnutrition at scale through the community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). The CMAM approach is geared towards the early detection, treatment and counselling of moderately and severely acutely malnourished children, in the community, by community agents.
The special feature of this edition of Humanitarian Exchange, co-edited with Victoria Metcalfe, focuses on issues related to humanitarian civil– military coordination.

On 4 March, the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar Bashir, on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity. On the same day, the Sudanese authorities told ten international NGOs that it had revoked their licences, and that they would immediately have to close their programmes across the country. It expelled three additional international NGOs in the days that followed and three Sudanese organisations were also disbanded.
The expulsions had an immediate impact on aid operations in Darfur.

During 2007 and 2008, donors commissioned reviews of a number of the key aid instruments in use in Southern Sudan. The main impetus for these reviews was a growing perception that, three years into the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), the current mix of funding mechanisms was not delivering results on the ground quickly enough. This article draws on a review conducted in early 2008 to examine issues around fund design, access and effectiveness from the perspective of NGOs supporting service delivery in Southern Sudan.

This issue of Humanitarian Exchange focuses
on the crisis in Darfur, Sudan. Since conflict began in early 2003, an
estimated 180,000- 400,000 people have died as a result of violence. The
crisis has been labelled "genocide" by the United States, the
first time that this has happened since Rwanda in 1994. Yet legal and political
recognition of the extent of the suffering has not translated into a robust
and effective response.
