ActionAid’s HRBA approach and the principles that guide long-term social change work also apply in disasters.
There are eight key principles that guide ActionAid’s disaster response:
we put people living in poverty first and address immediate needs as basic rights in emergencies, enabling their active agency as rights activists
we analyse and confront unequal power
we advance women’s rights
we work in partnership
we are accountable and transparent
we monitor, evaluate our impact, critically reflect and learn to improve our work
we ensure links across levels – local, national, regional, international
we build credible alternatives to the traditional top-down model of humanitarian response.
