Accountability to Affected People

WEBINAR: Taking Account, Giving Account and Being Held to Account – Buzzwords or Benefits for People in Crises?

Accountability to Affected People
May 30, 2016 Accountability

The Inter Agency Standing Committee’s (IASC) Principals have agreed to the ‘5 Commitments on Accountability to Affected Populations’ (CAAP). AAP is widely talked about in the humanitarian community, but what does accountability to affected people actually mean in practice?

In this webinar, panellists discuss the difference between accountability and participation, as well as the contrast between collective and individual accountability. Our speakers share concrete tips on how to practically implement AAP commitments in operations, based on examples from the field.
