In light of the challenges in securing and sustaining humanitarian access and the central role access plays in contributing to effective humanitarian assistance and protection, the Government of Switzerland launched an initiative in 2009 to develop practical resources on humanitarian access in situations of armed conflict.

This Practitioners’ Manual and the accompanying publication, Humanitarian Access in Situations of Armed Conflict: Handbook on the International Normative Framework, are the two resources developed under the initiative. These resources also contribute to the fulfilment of the objectives of the Swiss Strategy on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict.
