High-quality, reliable evidence is central to humanitarian action. In this new Evaluation of Humanitarian Action method note, Ian Christoplos brings together lessons from four previous notes, and looks at how evidence is generated through evaluations and the challenges confronting those who commission and carry them out.

Rapid urbanisation is transforming sub-Saharan Africa and changing the nature of risk related to both disaster and climate change across the continent. African towns and cities face unique challenges, with limited financial resources, fragmented urban governance, tense relations with national governments, and large infrastructure deficits.

This event will discuss entry points for building resilience when local government is weak or unresponsive and the possibility of planning urban development to better account for risk today and into the future.

The Humanitarian Evidence Program, a partnership between Oxfam and Feinstein International Center at Tufts University, has just published eight systematic reviews of evidence in key areas of the humanitarian field, with the ultimate goal of improving humanitarian policy and practice.

In a blog for ALNAP, Roxani Krystalli (Program Manager at the Feinstein International Center) shares the four overarching themes uncovered whilst writing the reviews.

Mapping of Monitoring in Humanitarian Action (MHA)

ALNAP is embarking on a new piece of research in order to better understand monitoring of humanitarian action in policy, in practice, and how these may differ.

As an initial step ALNAP is undertaking a two year research project, mapping the current landscape of monitoring in the humanitarian sector.

This exercise aims to plot the perspectives and priorities of different actors, the purposes and uses for this data, as well as the processes, policy, procedures and standards applied to it. This will serve as a scoping study, helping to identify specific areas of MHA that could benefit from further investigation.
