Humanitarian data and analysis

ACAPS supports the work of the humanitarian community by focusing on the needs and access situation of people affected. We also identify risks and build scenarios to help responders anticipate and respond.

We provide independent and multisectoral data and analysis in the form of the following:

  • Global analysis of crisis severity, access issues, and risk 

  • Anticipatory analysis and scenario-building 

  • Analysis of multiple crises in one country 

  • Analysis of one crisis across multiple countries 

  • Dashboards and visualisations

  • Datasets

Our agility defines our work and enables us to design short- to medium-term crisis projects ad hoc. Today, aside from our worldwide analysis capacity, ACAPS runs several Analysis Hubs focusing on specific contexts.


Afghanistan faces one of the world's largest and most complex humanitarian crises, grown even more severe since the Taliban took control. ACAPS supports the humanitarian community in the country by providing independent analysis on the complex and interconnected challenges plaguing the humanitarian response and how humanitarian needs are understood. These challenges include, but are not limited to, the political economy, climate change and the environment, poverty and livelihoods, conflict dynamics, important features of the society and culture, and other aspects of the context.

ACAPS has established a new consortium with IMMAP and REACH focused on information management and analysis: the EVIDEM consortium (Evidence-based Decision-making). Through this new collaboration, ACAPS will provide independent analysis and technical support to contribute to a strengthened humanitarian response in Colombia. The aim of the consortium is to create a robust evidence base for strategic, programming, and operational decision-making. This collaboration will allow for better coherence and efficiency in delivering information management and analysis products to the humanitarian sector in Colombia, including continued support to the MIRE mechanism.

The Middle East continues to contend with a range of interconnected crisis in  Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Yemen. These combined contexts have led to millions displaced and reliant on aid for basic survival. The ACAPS Middle East Analysis Hub was established to conduct integrated analysis in support of humanitarian and development stakeholders working on crisis response in the region. We directly supports these contexts with thematic specialisations in gender, protection, political-economy and, food security with the cross-cutting analysis of big data. We have a dedicated team of analysts based in Amman, supported by technical experts in secondary data analysis, needs assessment, scenario building, risk and analysis capacity building.

The Rapid Analysis Hub’s primary role is to respond to alerts from the START Network and produce response and anticipatory briefing notes, primarily on climate-related disasters, conflict and displacement, and disease outbreaks. In coordination with other hubs, the team also produces timely analysis on additional sudden-onset or conflict developments and helps monitor complex crises across different regions of the world. 


On 15 April 2023, a violent power struggle broke out in Sudan’s capital of Khartoum. Five months after the start of the conflict, as at 9 August, UNHCR had registered more than 4.36 million IDPs within Sudan, and almost 900,000 people have already fled Sudan to neighbouring countries. The current conflict has significantly exacerbated an already dire humanitarian situation. ACAPS has established a dedicated analysis hub for the crisis in Sudan for an initial period of 12-months. The hub is working to highlight key information gaps and humanitarian response constraints as well as pre-crisis contextual knowledge.

The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine has been rapidly evolving since February 2022, with significant information gaps on needs across the country. The ACAPS Ukraine Analysis Hub aims to produce timely and high-quality analytical products from an independent perspective to strengthen the evidence base for decision-making and response-programming among humanitarian stakeholders.
