Our services


ACAPS has completed hundreds of training sessions and workshops, and trained about 100 junior analysts to reinforce the analytical capacity of the humanitarian architecture.

Humanitarian needs analysis aims to make sense of available information and identify significant facts, trends, and anomalies to inform efficient and effective decision-making.

ACAPS approach

We have gained a strong reputation for our technical know-how and methodological transparency. Existing analysis training tends to focus on technical, statistical, and software-based analysis. We believe that analysis is more than that; we believe that it is a process that requires the application of cognitive functions, an inquisitive mindset, and the use of structured analytical techniques.

Humanitarian Analysis Learning Lab

Everyday humanitarians worldwide make life-saving decisions. In complex, fast-moving situations, it is hard to get a clear picture. Getting the right data, making sense of it, and providing evidence are crucial to ensuring that assistance reaches those most in need. The Humanitarian Analysis Learning Lab (HALL) supports the humanitarian sector to produce quality evidence and helps decision-makers make better use of it.


Humanitarian Analysis Bootcamp

Humanitarian Analysis Bootcamp

The Humanitarian Analysis Bootcamp is a global, fully online, free-of-charge training for 200 participants. It mixes short self-paced modules, individual and group work, peer-to-peer learning, and facilitated live sessions.


The bootcamp relies on real-life humanitarian examples. It uses gamified teaching methods, videos, podcasts, and interactive facilitation techniques. We do not want learners to simply consume information; we want them to experience the material. Instead of just transferring knowledge, we help learners become better analytical thinkers.

Supporting Humanitarian Decision Makers

The HALL project provides training for decision makers. Good and unbiased evidence is useful but not sufficient for more effective decision-making. It matters as well how decision makers process the evidence. The humanitarian decision-making process often appears like a black box, where evidence goes in and a decision comes out. HALL wants to open up the black box and help decision makers in the sector reflect on the underlying dynamics of humanitarian decision-making, mitigate biases, and make better and more effective use of evidence.

Alumni network

We believe that the quality of analysis improves and becomes less biased when analysts work together. There is a huge potential for sharing expertise and creating knowledge, peer support, and professional networking for the benefit of the whole sector and ultimately crisis-affected populations. This is why we want to connect and convene analysts by creating a common space for all HALL alumni. We will tap into these synergies by organising and encouraging initiatives such as local live events, webinars, roundtables, online fora, and other opportunities to share experiences and knowledge.

Tailored trainings

ACAPS has over a decade of experience as an independent analytical voice helping humanitarian workers make better-informed decisions and respond more effectively to disasters. We can tailor training sessions to your specific needs. From facilitating a one-hour online session to organising a one-week face-to-face workshop, we are happy to put together a program to support you in improving your organisation’s analytical capacity.
