What we do


ALNAP has developed a range of materials helping humanitarian actors commission, conduct and use evaluations in a variety of contexts.

Lessons papers

ALNAP Lessons Papers aim to improve humanitarian action by making lessons of previous responses available to staff designing and evaluating humanitarian responses.

Humanitarian effectiveness / SOHS

In 2015, we release a new 'State of the humanitarian system' report, host our 30th Annual Meeting on cooperation, and a Global Forum on improving humanitarian action.

Engagement & accountability

Engagement, accountability and feedback mechanisms are the focus of various ALNAP research projects. They were also the theme of our 2014 Meeting.

Leadership & coordination

ALNAP's research on leadership shows effective humanitarian action is not only about having 'leaders' but also teams and structures.


The Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HiF), co-founded by ALNAP, supports the development and proliferation of innovative approaches in humanitarian contexts.

Urban response

Urban crises differ from rural disasters and require other approaches. ALNAP helps in raising awareness of this fact and sharing knowledge, experiences and skills.

National actors

ALNAP has done research on how international actors can learn from national actors in humanitarian response, and how they can better engage with them.


ALNAP conducted research on the use and quality of evidence in humanitarian action and identified key criteria to judge the quality of evidence that is generated.
