This paper by Alan Brouder of Habitat for Humanity GB argues that accountability to affected populations has become an established principle of humanitarian action in recent years, but that it has not yet been sufficiently embedded in the culture and practice of the humanitarian system to make a meaningful impact on the manner in which the humanitarian programme cycle is managed. The paper proposes some key reasons why so little progress has been made by the humanitarian sector in meeting its accountability commitments to affected people, and calls for renewed efforts and improved leadership to meet these commitments.
