The Guardian Examines Separation Between Humanitarian, Development Funding

The Guardian: Is it time to rethink the divide between humanitarian and development funding?
“‘So much of what is wrong in the sector stems from the perverse incentives around money,’ says Simon Levine [a research fellow at the Overseas Development Institute specializing in livelihoods]. We are discussing why development and humanitarian work is funded separately when most crises have gone on for so long, they can hardly be classed as emergencies at all. … The need for radical change seems clear. And yet, with the exception of Levine, everyone I spoke to still argues for the continued separation of development and humanitarian assistance…” (Anyangwe, 12/4).
