How can humanitarian actors obtain accurate information in crises where their ability to access affected populations is limited?


In contexts where humanitarian organisations and communities are exposed to high levels of insecurity, it can be extremely challenging to gain a good picture of needs as well as keep track of the reach and effectiveness of programming.

In this third webinar of the ALNAP Bridging the Evidence Gap series, we spoke with GPPi, ACAPS, and ADESO who are tackling the question of how to gather accurate data on needs and programming when access is constrained.

Bridging the Evidence Gap, ALNAP's latest webinar series, will highlight new tools, research and initiatives which have taken on a more evidence-driven approach to humanitarian action. Through this series we will explore the methodologies and creative designs on the cutting edge and their direct relevance to practitioners. You can find out more about the series here.
