Environment in Humanitarian Action: What Donors Need to Know

Communication Material,Guideline

The Environment and Humanitarian Action Network’s donor tip sheet is a resource to guide donors on how to have an impact, from influencing policy proposals and projects to engaging with the issue on a personal level. It outlines the principles of Environment in Humanitarian Action, an explanation of the integration’s importance, ways that donors can exercise influence, and a list of relevant resources.

The integration of environment into humanitarian action is critical to ensure effectiveness, sustainability and accountability of humanitarian operations. Integrating environmental considerations during the early phases of emergency response strengthens people’s livelihoods, fosters resilience and reduces the risk of cascading impacts and future emergencies.
