2014 Cambridge International Development Report

The Humanitarian Centre’s 2014 Cambridge International Development Report has now been released!

The report this year focuses on building a hunger free-world. Look inside for exciting and thought provoking work looking at how development, humanitarianism, industry, and technology can work together to counter this growing threat. Thanks to all those who have been at the general release; tell us your thoughts.


For any comments or questions, please look on our twitter account. Be part of the debate.

What we do

The Humanitarian Centre’s aim is to identify and solve problems that tackle the root causes of poverty and inequality and to alleviate their enduring symptoms. We do this in partnership with one another, by creating the space and conditions that allow us to listen and learn especially from our partners in communities and countries where poverty and inequality are most devastating. This approach enables us to take bold but thoughtful steps forward and to generate real solutions that make a tangible difference to communities worldwide.

The Centre supports over 45 member organisations, through training and networking (for example, in marketing, volunteer management and monitoring and evaluation).  Find out more!

The Humanitarian Centre Ambassadors

Extending the reach of Cambridge’s impact in the global community was the theme of the Launch of the Humanitarian Centre’s Ambassadors group on October 27. The event was hosted by Lord Richard Wilson, the Humanitarian Centre’s Patron, in the Gardner Room of Emmanuel College.
