The overarching goal of humanitarian assistance is to allocate funding according to need. But in order to make a good job of this, humanitarian donors need evidence on needs, context, and the cost, quality and effectiveness of different intervention types.
This webinar looked at how evidence is used in donor decision making and priority setting, and the approaches that some donors have taken to improve the use of evidence in their funding allocations.
What questions are donors seeking to answer when deciding how to allocate funds and set spending priorities? What tools are they using to do this in an evidence-driven way? Why is there such an interest in randomized control trials?
