The Steering Committee for Humanitarian Response (SCHR) is an alliance of major international humanitarian organisations aiming to support increased quality, accountability and learning within the humanitarian sector. To this end it used a peer review process, with three main objectives:

• To understand the range and diversity of approaches to accountability to disaster-affected persons;

• To share best practices, challenges, and learning within and between members in taking forward the adoption, integration and use of different approaches to accountability, and their relative effectiveness and practicality;

• To inform decisions about whether and how best to prioritise and integrate the diversity of accountability approaches in our organisations and the humanitarian sector.
