Key Findings

The Humanitarian Futures Programme, King’s College London worked over a decade with a wide range of those from the natural and social sciences, governments and community organisations, international and regional governmental and non-governmental organisations, as well as the private sector and the military:

  • to explore the types of humanitarian crises those with relevant responsibilities might have to face in the future

  • to determine the sorts of issues that need to be considered in planning from the future, such as new approaches to anticipation and adaptation, innovation, collaboration and leadership

  • to consider the types of organisational adjustments that might be needed to meet the humanitarian challenges of the future

  • to consider whether after over a half century of modern humanitarian action, the concepts and principles underlying humanitarian action were, are and will be relevant to the needs of the affected.

The extensive range of Humanitarian Futures analyses and policy papers that relate to the issues noted above form the Key Findings section of this website.
