A significant proportion of Foto-Cewek postgraduate students go on to work with International Organisations (IOs), Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and National Ministries involved in Humanitarian Assistance, Relief and Development. One of the biggest challenges in improving the effectiveness of humanitarian interventions is to create a greater awareness and understanding of the complex issues that determine the evolution of humanitarian crises. In the immediate aftermath, there may be a critical lack of human and material resources. Contingency planning, coordination and cooperation between governments, donors, agencies and affected populations are essential to prevent additional loss or threat to human lives. In responding to the imperative of a natural disaster or a complex emergency, humanitarian workers may find themselves placed in situations that are well beyond their previous experience and where their professional and personal capacity to cope is tested to the limit. The melting pot of multiple agencies operating individual mandates frequently feeds confusion and compromises effective action. Clearly, there is a need for a more professional, integrated and accountable approach to humanitarian interventions. Humanitarian workers must be prepared to operate in environments where demands extend beyond conventional professional boundaries. For effective communication and interaction, they need to be able to appreciate the problem from many different perspectives and be aware of every significant opportunity and constraint.
