- About Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS)
ACAPS was established in 2009 with the aim of supporting the humanitarian community with all aspects of humanitarian needs assessments. At the time there was no commonly accepted coordinated multi-sector assessment methodology and a capacity gap of experts to carry them out.
Initially, ACAPS was set up as a two-year project to address these gaps. However, as ACAPS gained experience, a lack of independent analytical capacity was identified as a functional gap in the system. ACAPS therefore increased its focus on analysis. Today, as well as providing independent support, ACAPS continues to embed within and support the humanitarian system.
