How successful has the international response to the Syria crisis been? This report sets out the results of an evaluation synthesis and gap analysis of publically available evaluative studies looking at the response between 2012 - 2015. The paper, commissioned by the Steering Group for Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluations, provides a summary of lessons learned from the crisis. ALNAP hosted the launch of this major study, which highlights the lack of analysis around key themes and issues.


Earlier this year, the ALNAP's Steering Committee undertook a light mid-term review of the 2013-2018 Strategy. The presentation provides an overview of the work ALNAP does and gives a sense of how our products are being used; by whom; and to what extent they are influencing policy and action. 

As part of the mid-term review, ALNAP also conducted a members survey, which can be read here.



How should evidence be used to design humanitarian programming?

ALNAP's new webinar series on evidence will highlight new tools, research and initiatives which have taken on a more evidence-driven approach to humanitarian action.

The first webinar with 3ie, Oxfam, IRC and Feinstein International Center focused on cutting edge practices and their practical relevence. The audio, video, and transcript of the webinar will be online shortly. 




Working together to improve humanitarian coordination

Since 2013, ALNAP has been exploring the key challenges to humanitarian coordination and conditions for successful coordination. Building on this body of work, ALNAP is now focusing on four aspects of coordination in the Clusters and the wider IASC coordination architecture, through a series of briefing papers, videos and webinars. The work will culminate with a meeting in June 2016 which will bring together coordination expertise from across the humanitarian sector and beyond in order to identify concrete recommendations to improve humanitarian coordination.

Evaluating Protection in humanitarian action

Despite the stated centrality of protection in humanitarian action and a growing attention to protection activities, the evaluation of protection has received relatively little attention. Our new pilot guide seeks to fill this gap, providing insights and guidance to those evaluating protection in the context of humanitarian action. This guide complements our Evaluation of Humanitarian Action Guide.
