The humanitarian lessons-learned genome
About this resource
This case study explores the development and implementation of the Humanitarian Genome Project, an innovation arising in the University of Groningen and developed in collaboration with humanitarian agencies.
Humanitarian agencies spend millions of pounds each year evaluating emergency response programmes, yet the sector continues to be criticised for repeatedly making the same errors and for failing to assimilate lessons from evaluations. In this context, the Humanitarian Genome 1.0 was designed as the first version of a free, digital, open source and globally accessible application allowing humanitarian workers to quickly access evaluation data to inform their decision making.
