Coverage, Operational Resources and Effectiveness (CORE)

The programme on Coverage, Operational Resources and Effectiveness (CORE) is the latest data stream initiative by Humanitarian Outcomes to provide quantifiable measures on the size of the humanitarian sector as well as its capacity and reach in crisis-affected countries. Its foundation is the Global Database of Humanitarian Organisations (GDHO) which tracks information on the staff size, programme expenditure, countries of operation and other key information on humanitarian providers worldwide. This data, combined with our methodology for calculating rigorous estimates, is helping to fill a critical gap in the empirical evidence base in the humanitarian sector.
