New report monitors effectiveness of global humanitarian systemListen /
Having a clear understanding of how well humanitarian efforts are working around the world is the subject of a new report released by ALNAP, a network of global humanitarian organizations.
ALNAP Director John Mitchell says some information on case loads, numbers affected, how well aid has been delivered and funding flows is available, but not all in one place.
He says this makes it difficult to monitor the performance and effectiveness of aid agencies.
According to Mr. Mitchell, the report shows that there's been good and bad news in humanitarian work.
