A key aspect of the project is the multi-sectoral collaboration between humanitarian agencies, donor agencies, international institutions, academia and the private sector (tech companies, risk management firms, law firms). The project brings together the collective knowledge and experience of these various sectors and draws on their different strengths in order to find innovative ways to improve emergency preparedness and response – and distill all of this into one system.

The Alert Consortium

The ALERT Project is led by the following consortium of organisations:

The START Network

The ALERT Project is part of the START Network – a group of 27 leading humanitarian civil society organisations working together to save lives, alleviate suffering and protect human dignity in times of crisis. The START Network has 7,000 partners worldwide.

Specifically, ALERT is part of the START Engage Initiative, which seeks to support step-change projects designed to catalyse fundamental transformation within the humanitarian field, that a single group or organisation could not undertake alone.
