  • Program Description
    All recent research has shown that while many of the qualities that effective leaders possess are not unique to the humanitarian sector, it is the context in which they are deployed that is unique. A very distinctive element comes first: working with people in distress, making decisions that will affect lives and livelihoods in a fluid situation and from incomplete and ambiguous information, often in a dangerous environment, with a wide range of different actors, some of whom are likely to oppose the humanitarian effort, while being under pressure to act quickly. This programme helps people around the world prepare for and respond to crises in their own communities.
