On the latter, as far as we are aware, no documents have brought together lessons from multiple donors and NGOs, and thus learning has remained donor-specific or project-based. A further challenge, as evidenced in the evaluations analysed in this study, is that actors have yet to act upon lessons they have learned, suggesting that other barriers need to be overcome in implementation. As of 2018, there were 194 organisations registered with the UnitedNations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA

Policymakers in France, Belgium, and the United States and at the UnitedNations all knew of the preparations for massive slaughter and failed to take the steps needed to prevent it. Aware from the start that Tutsi were being targeted for elimination, the leading foreign actors refused to acknowledge the genocide.… When international leaders did finally voice disapproval, the genocidal authorities listened well enough to change their tactics although not their ultimate goal. Far from cause for satisfaction, this small success only

As troops loyal to the government advanced toward Bentiu in the first week of
January, MSF-H decided to evacuate its whole team and relocate it, for safety, to
the town of Leer, 130 kilometres south of Bentiu, where the aid agency had been
running the local hospital since 2005. In an article posted on the
December 1949, as
one of two UN agencies (the other being the UnitedNations Conciliation Commission on Palestine

conflict usually with disastrous consequences. Do you think there’s an
