The effects of a warming climate will likely be far-reaching and profound. In addition to warming and changed weather patterns, climate change will increasingly spark extremes in weather – a greater frequency and intensity of storms, heat, and cold.

To respond to these effects, humanitarian action needs to focus more on climate preparedness and response to slow-onset disasters – but how does humanitarian protection work fit into this shift?

The ability to make good decisions – particularly under urgent and uncertain circumstances – is fundamental to effective humanitarian response. Yet decision-making to this extent has received little academic attention. Our new ALNAP Study ‘Beyond assumptions’ seeks to address this gap and it is the result of over two years’ work exploring the nature of humanitarian contexts, the different types of decisions that they require, and the most suitable approaches to making these decisions at the country/field level.

There are many elements to the institutionalization of engagement, to make public participation effective, meaningful, and inclusive. Despite this, institutionalization of engagement requires a social and political embrace of people’s participation in decision-making, where stakeholders are seen as partners in governance, and the democratic process moves beyond elections every few years. This is especially true in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which makes clear that stakeholders are central to the success of the SDGs.
