SummaryOne of the core functions of foreign aid organisations working in the field is to report to their headquarters and to keep the local government and communities currently informed of their activities. Reporting is required to enable organizations to fulfill a number of their core responsibilities including: ensuring that their programs are adapting to changing needs; providing documentation about their work to donors, government authorities , beneficiary communities and the media; maintaining their programs under regular review to ensure that they are achieving the intended outcomes.
In light of the importance of the topic, and the requests made by UAE donor organisations during the 2012 Review of the UAE Relief Team in Libya and the 2013 Training Needs Assessment, OCFA has partnered with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) to hold a 2 day workshop on ‘reporting from the field’. NRC currently has extensive experience in managing and reporting on development and humanitarian projects, and currently employs approximately 3,000 members of staff in around 20 countries in Africa, Asia, America and Europe.

EIF reports provide information on current emergencies, in order to alert UAE actors to the most pressing needs resulting from a humanitarian emergency, as well as an overview of the international and UAE response to date. An EIF is issued when support from the UAE may be required due to the magnitude of the crisis or the vulnerability of the affected population.
Humanitarian Flash reports are available to UAE actors only, and provide updates on current humanitarian issues worldwide by theme, such as climate change and the global food crisis, as well as a summary of natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, to which there has generally not been an international response.
Humanitarian Country Profiles provide information about development and humanitarian issues within a selected country, as well as listing the major local and international organizations that are already present in the field. The countries are selected according to the level of assistance that they have received from the UAE over the past two decades, and whether they are facing recurrent or ‘chronic’ emergencies.
