operationalization of humanitarian development interventions
Home Advocacy
Together, we have more power – that's true of any group. That’s one reason why Humentum advocates on behalf of our membership (270+ organizations). We talk to policy-makers and funders about what needs to change to make large-scale systems reform possible. We also talk about day-to-day policies that need to be in place (or in some cases removed) so that every NNGO and INGO can do their work more effectively.

Humentum’s Section 889 Working Group has been a huge help while working through questions and compliance requirements on this complex topic. Humentum staff have also been able to liaise with government contacts to get and share information about upcoming waivers with the group
