Improving the quality of evaluation of humanitarian action and their related research, learning activities is ALNAP’s first strategic focus area. This entails developing guidance on humanitarian evaluation, provide a repository of knowledge for the humanitarian system through the HELP library and offer a platform for evaluators to be in touch with their peers across the Network.
The Evaluating Humanitarian Action (EHA) Guide supports specialists and non-specialists in every stage of an evaluation, from initial decision to dissemination.
ALNAP has developed a simple framework that agencies can use to commission, conduct, and utilise evaluations in a more effective way.
Humanitarian evaluators don't have much guidance available on protection. ALNAP is doing research to identify the challenges on this front and develop guidance.
Real-time evaluations (RTEs) are one of the most demanding due to time constraints. ALNAP's Guide on RTEs intends to help in the commission, oversight and conduction of these.
Meta-evaluations are increasingly being used to identify trends and quality in particular sectors. ALNAP has developed a Quality Pro Forma to aid this process.
Based on the ALNAP Pilot Guide on 'Evaluating Humanitarian Action', this e-learning course is the first to offer an overview of evaluation practice in humanitarian contexts.
You can connect with other evaluators in the ALNAP Network and ask questions about any EHA issues by joining the
Humanitarian Evaluation Community of Practice.
