• Emergency Gap

    The project responds to MSF’s concerns regarding the declining emergency response capacity and presence of humanitarian actors in conflict zones. The Emergency Gap work aims to diagnose the drivers of this loss of emergency focus and to analyse the enablers and disablers for the provision of effective response in acute conflict settings. The project also aspires to stimulate debate with a view to identifying better strategic and operational approaches for delivering critical assistance to people trapped in situations of armed conflict.
