The objective of the Advanced Training Programme on Humanitarian Action (ATHA) is to enhance the knowledge of NGOs operating in the humanitarian field, and to create greater awareness of the relationship between development, cooperation and humanitarian operations in complex environments. The training is co-organized by the Sida Civil Society Center (SCSC) and the Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research at Harvard University (HPCR), and aims to build a foundation of insightful and continuous dialogue on humanitarian issues among NGOs and other relevant stakeholders.
