‘Dangerous Delays’ research is underway

The Centre for Humanitarian Change (CHC) is conducting research on behalf of Save the Children and the University of Edinburgh that will contribute to an enhanced understanding of what is needed at a National or sub-national level to ensure early action. The aim of the research is to generate a detailed understanding of blockers and enablers of early action to slow the onset of food crises at a localised level through real-time and historic tracking of data sharing, decision making, and action to provide a timeline of the release of information, the decisions and actions of different actors in each context and a
mapping of the role of different actors.

The research will be used:
• As part of new policy document(s) which will follow up on the actions and recommendations made under the ground-breaking Dangerous Delays report
published by Save the Children and Oxfam almost 10 years ago, to be published in 2022
• To inform the work and focus of the newly launched Jameel Observatory for Food Crisis Early Action in East and Southern Africa, which seeks to support locally identified evidence and data gaps to enabling early action through collaboration

The final report will be submitted at the end of April 2022.
