New way of working

Source(s):  United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs - Headquarters (OCHA)

This document discusses the need for a change in the way humanitarian assistance is provided and the shared moral imperative of preventing crises and sustainably reducing people’s levels of humanitarian need, a task that requires the pursuit of collective outcomes across silos.

The notion of “collective outcomes” transcends the humanitarian-development divide. It frames the work of development and humanitarian actors, along with national and local counterparts, in support of collective outcomes that reduce risk and vulnerability and serve as instalments toward the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Ending needs by reducing risks and vulnerability is now a shared vision, under the SDG umbrella, that transcends this decades-old divide. The New Way of Working offers a concrete, doable and measurable path forward. The changes required to make this approach work are institutionally and financially complex and will need time to operationalize.
