Our goal is to help you understand and follow up the humanitarian crises around the world and document the Arab efforts. To do so, we examine the sites of international organizations and non-governmental organizations, governments, research institutions and the media for news, reports and press releases, appeals, and policy documents, analysis and maps related to humanitarian emergencies worldwide.
We provide the appropriate content on the Arab Humanitarian portal, and we deliver it through your favorite channels (RSS, e-mail, Twitter or Facebook).
Three offices were established in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and United Arab Emirates to ensure the updated gate around the clock. Wherever you are in the world, you can follow the humanitarian news by visiting the portal or through Twitter and Facebook. You can send your activities humanitarian via e-mail to email@example.com.
What is the Information Network for Humanitarian Affairs?
The Humanitarian Information Network (HIN) is a group of humanitarian actors governed by the humanitarian principles of information management. The HIN is the first Arabic-region information platform to focus on humanitarian issues. It provides an environment in which to exchange humanitarian information for a better response to emergencies.
The Arab Humanitarian Portal centralizes and facilitates access to humanitarian information in the Arab region through a common portal. It coordinates information to identify gaps, and it promotes the dissemination of humanitarian analysis to help policymakers and field workers make sound decisions in a timely manner.
