All In Diary is a small, independent, not-for-profit NGO whose influence is continuing to grow with the support and encouragement of a wide range of organisations and individuals.
What is the All In Diary?
The All In Diary provides quick and easy access to essential information in disaster situations – providing clear, concise, up-to-date guidance on topics across the whole humanitarian sector, in an practical format.
In its printed format, the All In Diary information pages are integrated with diary and notes pages – in a handy A5, spiral bound booklet for taking with you to the field.
So often immediately after a disaster there is little or no electricity or internet access, and little time to read through detailed manuals.
This website provides access to all the All In Diary information pages, for browsing or downloading, plus direct access to all the resources and weblinks identified on each of the information pages.
Many useful tools and manuals exist but they can be difficult to access from multiple sources during an emergency.
The All In Diary is relevant to all those involved in emergencies – whether you have been thrust into an unfamiliar humanitarian role by the disaster, or you are a technical expert who is having to extend their understanding and knowledge of other sectors.
Who is behind All In Diary?
All In Diary was set up in 2006 by two independent humanitarian workers – Linda Richardson and Gill Price – who believe passionately that by enabling both local and international humanitarian workers to access the same information in the field, they could help bring everyone onto the same page – and thereby improve quality, increase accountability and enhance collaboration.
Since 2006, All In Diary has worked in close collaboration with major humanitarian agencies such as Save the Children, World Vision, UNICEF, RedR UK, International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the Danish Refugee Council. The information pages have been continually adapted to incorporate feedback from field users and is now in its 4th edition. It has been translated, on a voluntary basis, into 8 languages and 3 country specific versions have been developed.
To date, almost 15,000 copies of the All In Diary have been distributed across the world.
