Seventeen Lessons give an overview of important learnings based on evaluations, research papers and interviews with operational humanitarian practitioners. Key links to relevant information are provided in each Lesson, with References provided at the end. Lessons are organised into two categories – Strategy and Management and Technical Delivery.
