South Asia is one of the most disaster prone regions of the world. It is also a region undergoing deep economic and political transition. As a result of global changes in the way humanitarian aid is viewed, as well as local imperatives, the principals and processes shaping the delivery of humanitarian aid in the region have been undergoing significant changes. What remains constant is the dire needs of the worst affected communities, though the way they themselves are viewed is also changing. Professionals engaged in this sector need to chart their course carefully, without losing sight of the little things that matter.
