Good Humanitarian Donorship Principles in Practice: Assessing humanitarian assistance to internally displaced persons in Sudan and Sri Lanka

Since initiating the GHD project, DAC donor governments have made various attempts to establish pilot projects and examine the extent to which GHD is being rolled out at the country level. As part of this process, this study was commissioned by OFDA in 2008 to explore how GHD and its implementation by donors was affecting humanitarian responses to the needs of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and communities affected by displacement. Sri Lanka and Sudan were chosen as case studies as both countries suffer from extensive internal displacement, and very significant donor resources have been invested to mitigate the consequences of human suffering.
