The review is based on interviews with over 300 individuals from United Nations country teams, governments, and civil society, including country visits to Chad, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Nigeria, and Somalia in 2018-2019, as well as insights from key informants in more than 20 countries. The overall conclusions of the review are positive: behavioral change is occurring along each dimension of the new way of working. The report finds no shortage of promising efforts to reinforce, rather than replace, national and local systems. It documents more effective collaboration is emerging among HDP actors and shows that efforts to prevent and prepare for crises before they emerge are growing in both number and sophistication.
