This launch event has concluded but you can still provide feedback via our survey and stay up to date on further opportunities to engage with the consulation. Watch the recording from the launch event below. 


Join ALNAP as we start consultations to update our guidance on the use of the OECD DAC criteria for the evaluation of humanitarian action.

After more than 15 years of effective use, ALNAP is updating its popular 2006 guidance on how to use the OECD DAC criteria for evaluating humanitarian action. We are looking for feedback from a broad spectrum of evaluators, humanitarians and other practitioners, from large agencies to small frontline actors, local community groups and first responders, working in diverse locations and different humanitarian contexts. 

At this event, ALNAP will present the main findings of new research reviewing the use of the OECD DAC criteria for evaluating humanitarian action, which highlights key challenges and issues related to their application. Participants should come ready to engage in a lively discussion and contribute insight. 

ALNAP will be launching a global survey of humanitarian and evaluation practitioners, an opportunity to share your views on changes you would like to see in the evaluation guidance.  

This launch begins a series of planned in-person and online consultation events to be held in the coming months, including for francophone practitioners and those in the MENA and Asia-Pacific regions.
