REACH Brochure January 2014 - Informing More Effective Humanitarian Action

Why was REACH created?

To respond to two critical gaps in the humanitarian system:

  • Aid actors have limited information at the onset of an emergency
  • Aid actors have limited knowledge of the communities they support

What is REACH?

REACH is a joint initiative of two international non-governmental organisations, ACTED and IMPACT Initiatives, and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme(UNOSAT). REACH was created in 2010 to facilitate the development of information tools and products that enhance the capacity of aid actors to make evidence-based decisions in emergency, recovery and development contexts. All REACH activities are conducted in support of and within the framework of inter-agency aid coordination mechanisms.
