Very Well Organized
They are very organized and have the ability to coordinate within interagency of organization. They are strengthened by tremendous funding resources from the U.S. Other

Areas for Improvement

Experts suggested that the movement should be more open to adaptation and should continue to refine their work by decreasing the red tape involved in their decision making process, and taking a more longsighted, developmental approach to relief.

Reform Structure
They should make their decision making process less constrictive. Currently, member organizations are prevented from using certain technologies due to review and acceptance by the "parent" organization. Member organizations should be able to independently review solutions and technologies that they believe in and can access. Other
Their overheads can possibly be reduced to offer more cost-effective services. Researcher and Faculty
They should change their perspective on risk management. Risk management tends to be based on a western ideal for managing risk. The concerns over risk management sometimes get in the way of a rapid response. Researcher and Faculty
Communicate More Effectively
They could communicate more effectively with other non-profit responders. They could improve the transition from their short-term relief to the longer-term work done by others. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Develop Human Resources
They could improve staff quality and tenure at the field management level. Other
Improve on Marketing
They can improve on their impact and marketing. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Their donor acknowledgement is very slow - they should really improve their response time. Foundation Professional
Take Developmental Approach
They should adopt a more developmental approach to humanitarian issues. They should adapt to changing humanitarian actors, including military being deployed by their governments for humanitarian ends. Nonprofit Senior Staff
