Nick van Praag

Founder & Director

Nick van Praag set up Ground Truth Solutions in 2012 with the goal of helping humanitarian agencies make good on their commitment to listen and react to people affected by humanitarian crises when designing and managing programmes. Nick’s focus at Ground Truth Solutions is on building the organisation’s team and its activities.

His prior career spans humanitarian and development work at the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the Aga Khan Development Network, and the World Bank. His interest in accountability to affected people stems from his experience of change management as Director at UNHCR and his work on conflict, security and the development nexus at the World Bank.
