The Centre for Humanitarian Analytics (CHA) is a humanitarian organization head-quartered in Harare and implementing initiatives throughout Africa. We are a vibrant humanitarian actor driven to bring fresh thinking to interrogate the status quo of humanitarian architecture, preparedness and response in Africa. CHA brings an interdisciplinary approach to which information is the epicentre of interventions such that humanitarian organisations can readily make and implement decisions at strategic, tactical and operational levels. Looking ahead, CHA strongly believes that by developing a deeper understanding of the shifting geopolitical, economic and environmental dynamics humanitarian practitioners in Africa will be better able to analyse the drivers of vulnerability and create opportunities to address them. CHA wants to champion a sector that revolutionizes humanitarian structures, processes and transforms the way that people are treated in crisis responses within the Africa continent. What evolving and underlying trends influence the future of humanitarian action and its ability to appropriately respond to the crises of tomorrow? Our role as CHA is to ask and answer tough questions, provide practice-based evidence for transformative action and connect people, technology and ideas benchmarked by global humanitarian standards adopted to the local environment to be usable by humanitarian agencies, scholars, policymakers, NGOs, Governments and others to foster interdisciplinary collaboration.
