Valid International
and ALNAP have developed 'Using evaluation for a change', an interactive study that aims to increase individuals', teams' and organisations' ability to commission, conduct, and utilise evaluations in a more effective way.


In June 2014, we hosted a webinar with the authors, Francesca Bonino and Alistair Hallam, introducing this interactive study.



Why a study on using evaluations?

For over seven years ALNAP has been involved in research to find out how the humanitarian system can benefit from evaluations and how barriers to utilising evaluation findings can be overcome. 

Significant evaluation expertise resides within the organisations that make up ALNAP’s Membership, and there is considerable untapped potential for cross-organisational learning in this area.

We have seen a significant increase in the quality and quantity of humanitarian evaluations over the past years. We have also witnessed a significant amount of learning that has taken place within organisations as to the best way to commission, carry-out and follow-up on evaluations. However, as Peta Sandison has stated in our 2006 Review of Humanitarian Action, it has become clear that opportunities to maximise benefit from evaluations are not always taken.
