The HIF-funded Humanitarian Genome Project is working towards making past humanitarian aid documented experiences accessible to the sector. These experiences are derived from within valuable existing evaluation reports. The idea behind the Humanitarian Genome’s name is to create the possibility of a ‘sectorial DNA’. Humanitarian actors would be able to tap into this DNA’s past hereditary information and in a matter of seconds generate sectorial wisdom, which is based upon past documented experiences.
