This database contains only consultants who specialize in humanitarian assistance.
To apply, you must have at least three (3) years of experience in international humanitarian assistance in a developing country. Your degrees / diplomas and experience must support your ability to help manage (plan, monitor, evaluate) international humanitarian assistance projects.
