Evidence is essential for effective, ethical and accountable humanitarian action. But how should it be used in planning humanitarian programming? For the first webinar in 'Bridging the Evidence Gap' - a new webinar series about the use of evidence in humanitarian action - ALNAP was joined by four organisations to find out more about how the sector can better use evidence for planning.

In this webinar, the panel discussed the presenters’ ground breaking work, the challenges they’ve faced, and the practical relevance of these tools for humanitarian policy and programming staff.

The work featured:
• 3ie will present their work on creating Evidence Gap Maps to inform development and humanitarian policies and programmes.

• Through their joint Humanitarian Evidence Programme, Oxfam and the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University have commissioned a set of eight evidence syntheses.

• The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has recently launched the Outcomes and Evidence Framework, a set of tools that define high-level outcomes, outline theories of change to achieve those outcomes, and collate the best available research evidence. Christof Kurz and Sheree Bennett will speak about this initiative. This will also serve as a unique opportunity for webinar participants to provide feedback on the beta version of the interactive Outcomes and Evidence Framework ahead of its official launch.
