Humanitarian Outcomes is a team of specialist consultants providing research and policy advice for humanitarian aid agencies and donor governments. We undertake independent research as well as commissioned studies and evaluations. Our work covers the institutional, financial, and operational mechanics of the international humanitarian system, and considers the broader political and strategic environment in which aid policy takes shape. In all our research products, we aim to provide practical solutions built on evidence-based analysis.
The Aid Worker Security Database is a Humanitarian Outcomes project and has been managed by the organisation since 2005.

The AWSD is a global compilation of reports on major security incidents involving deliberate acts of violence affecting aid workers.
Incident data is collected both from public sources, through systematic media filtering using a data scraper tool developed for Humanitarian Outcomes, and from information provided directly to the project by aid organisations and operational security entities. The project also maintains agreements with a number of regional and field-level security consortiums for direct information sharing and verification of incidents.
Incident reports are crosschecked and verified with the relevant agencies on an annual basis via our verification project. The latest, unverified incidents are provided on the online database with the qualification that the numbers are provisional and may change.
