Groupe Urgence Réhabilitation Développement (URD)

Humanitarian agencies have long believed that increased consultation and participation of people affected by crises should improve accountability and the quality of humanitarian assistance. And more so, participation should acknowledge the right of affected populations to self-determination. This handbook is ultimately intended to be used by international humanitarian personnel as well as staff working for national and local organisations .
