Both the Advisory Board and Scientific Committee gathered this week in Geneva to take stocks on past months project evolutions. We had enriching discussions and debates, alternating plenary session with workshops sessions.
Tuesday morning session was dedicated to a joint meeting for the two instances, where the methodology leading to the selection of 126 key humanitarian concepts was presented and adopted. We reached an important milestone that will drive our next research phases.
We want to thank all our governing bodies members for their active participation and their active engagement around the Humanitarian Encyclopedia initiative.
We would like to extend our gratitude to all the humanitarian practitioners who contributed to March 2018 survey, and to the workshops that were held during the Summer in India, Malaysia, Mali, Kenya, Lebanon and Iraq. The survey and the workshops results together with text analysis led to the selection of the 126 concepts through a combination of the three methodologies.
