REACH Informing more effective humanitarian action

Chatelaine, Switzerland

Created in 2010, REACH is a joint initiative of IMPACT Initiatives, ACTED and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme. REACH activities are conducted in support and within the framework of inter-agency coordination mechanisms at field and global levels to enabling more efficient aid planning and response. REACH was first deployed to Libya in 2011 and 2012 in order to support the humanitarian response following the ousting of the regime. As conflict re-escalated, REACH was again deployed to Libya in 2015, and today the work of REACH focuses on multi-sector needs assessments and research programmes investigating the impacts of migration flows in and to the country.
