Evidence in humanitarian action: background paper now available
Posted on 15 February 2013
Ahead of the meeting on Evidence & Knowledge in Humanitarian Action taking place in Washington next month, ALNAP has released the full background paper that explores the issues of data collection and use of evidence in humanitarian aid.
As well as reviewing theories and concepts of evidence, the paper looks at how evidence currently informs decision-making at the operational level.
A three-page discussion framer, which summarises the main questions and themes of the full paper, is also available to download.
Both the full background paper and the discussion framer will feed into the discussions and exchange at the ALNAP meeting.
For those who cannot make the meeting, but are still interested in a comprehensive overview of the subject of evidence and knowledge in humanitarian aid, the background paper and discussion framer are easy-to-read and available to download.
