As humanitarians we spend a lot of time debating what needs to change in our sector and why. But do we look enough at how that change happens?
Humanitarians, willingly or not, usually find themselves surrounded by change in some shape or form. It can come as an unexpected shift that escapes any plans or structure, or it can happen as a planned programme such as Humanitarian Reform, The Transformative Agenda (TA), and now the Grand Bargain.

1 / Introduction
Monitoring has long been acknowledged as being an area that is in need of further attention. In 2003, ALNAP’s Annual Review, ‘Humanitarian action: Improving monitoring to enhance accountability and learning’, identified a number of issues with the practice of monitoring, first and foremost a general lack of clarity on the meaning of the term. Since then, despite consistent recognition of the need for improvement, little significant progress has been achieved (ALNAP, 2010, 2012).
ALNAP is looking for an intern to support our on-going research and network engagement work on urban humanitarian response. You can learn more about ALNAP’s urban work at http://www.alnap.org/what-we-do/urban.
ALNAP internships are a chance to build on existing skills and experience. ALNAP hopes interns will express their own interests, and will be as flexible as possible. It would be useful for the intern to have some prior knowledge of/exposure to humanitarian work, particularly urban crises.
