Humanitarian Outcomes is a team of specialist consultants providing research and policy advice for humanitarian aid agencies and donor governments. Our research covers the institutional, financial, and operational mechanics of the international humanitarian system, and considers the broader political and strategic environment in which aid policy takes shape.

The Aid Worker Security Database (AWSD) is a project of Humanitarian Outcomes that records major incidents of violence against aid workers, with incident reports from 1997 through the present. Initiated in 2005, to date the AWSD remains the sole comprehensive global source of this data, providing the evidence base for analysis of the changing security environment for civilian aid operations. Statistics provided by the AWSD have formed the basis of major international studies, as well as briefing papers and trend analyses produced every year by the AWSD Research Team of Humanitarian Outcomes.
