We equip crisis responders to better address the world's disasters
ACAPS supports the humanitarian community's work on severity and trends by diving into the current situation of more than 100 key crises around the globe, while helping actors anticipate and respond to emerging crises.
ACAPS provides high quality, independent and multi-sectoral analysis. This enables crisis responders to better understand and consequently to better address the needs of the affected population, as well as strengthening the assessment ecosystem.
Currently ACAPS runs Analysis Hubs in Amman, with a focus on the Yemen crisis, and in Cox's Bazar, with a focus on the Rohingya refugees crisis, from where we produce more granular analytical products. Being agile characterises our work and short-medium term ad hoc crisis projects are opened when needed.
We are a young startup but we have been busy! Since we launched in 2009, ACAPS has produced over 500 reports and counting.
We create specific reports to meet your needs
ACAPS can produce tailored analytical products, scenario building workshops, and field assessments on request for your organisation. These services supplement your own work in a collaborative learning environment and support your decision-making mechanisms.

We strengthen the humanitarian sector as a whole
ACAPS has gained a strong reputation for its technical know-how and the quality of its sources. So far we have completed over 100 training sessions and workshops with key humanitarian organisations, with very successful results. By constantly improving our products and approach, we are driving innovation and new thinking in the humanitarian assessment sector.
We have trained up more than 80 junior analysts between 2010 and 2020, who have reinforced the capacity of the humanitarian system. We also carry out trainings on analysis for organisations to improve their analytical capacity, learn more about the ACAPS Humanitarian Analysis Programme (HAP).
We help you make better-informed decisions
Being independent of specific operational and sectoral agendas or interests allows us to encourage everyone involved in humanitarian response to seek more of an evidence-based approach to decision-making. In our daily work, we campaign for humanitarian organisations to use more information direct from the field and a greater level of independent qualitative analysis when making and implementing key decisions.
