Our Mission


To enable people around the world to prepare for and respond to crises in their own countries

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy is a global learning initiative set up to facilitate partnerships and collaborative opportunities to enable people to prepare for and respond to crises in their own countries.


hla_learning_approachWe aim to support the needs of individuals, organisations and communities by facilitating access to learning resources, platforms and tools. This enables locally relevant capacity-sharing and mutual learning.



Collaboration is the cornerstone of the Academy. We work with partners across the humanitarian sector and beyond; from technology companies to universities; local communities to multinational corporations, drawing on the knowledge, expertise and resources of a range of organisations to ensure the best solutions are found for those most in need.
