Centre for Humanitarian Action

The Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA) is a Berlin-based think tank founded in 2018, which engages in independent analysis, initiates debates and spreads the word about humanitarian action and principles amongst the general public. The CHA is an initiative of humanitarian non-governmental organisations to strengthen German and international humanitarian action.

The CHA project aims to analyse the impact of climate change on the humanitarian system and in particular on norms, mandates and practices of humanitarian action, on the one hand in terms of existing and increasing challenges, and on the other hand in order to identify opportunities to fundamentally address current systemic issues and the related possibilities for change and reorientation.
