UCD Centre for Humanitarian Action
The UCD Centre for Humanitarian Action (UCD CHA) is an internationally recognised platform of excellence for humanitarian research and education.
The UCD CHA is an interdisciplinary research and teaching platform focused on international humanitarian action, whose mission is to enhance the professional delivery of humanitarian action through the provision of interdisciplinary and internationally recognised research to inform policy and practice.
The UCD CHA is based in the School of Agriculture and Food Science and draws on the expertise of Schools and Institutes across UCD. It is a university-wide initiative that provides a gateway for humanitarian stakeholders (inter-governmental, governmental, non-governmental and private sector) to access the rich resource base that UCD offers across its Colleges and Schools. Equally, it provides ‘an opportunity’ for UCD staff to engage in new ways to ‘tackle global challenges’.
