In 2022, ALNAP has been working with frontline staff and their managers from local and international organisations to better understand the benefits and challenges around frontline learning. We designed, trialled and refined two new practical resource packs Sharing Tacit Knowledge for Humanitarians and Action Learning for Frontline Humanitarians.  Our learning from the pilots is captured in the paper Learning Where it Matters.

In this webinar, ALNAP Secretariat staff and implementing colleagues discussed what we have learned about supporting and sharing frontline learning and tacit knowledge, and the challenges and opportunities these present for improving humanitarian action. We heard from staff based in different regions of the world and senior leaders from local NGOs about their experiences in this project and the broader importance of frontline learning to their humanitarian work.
