Humanitarian Evidence Programme: What's the state of the evidence?

26 October 2017
02:30 - 04:30, GMT +1

In the closing webinar of our series, join Karol Czuba and Tyler O’Neill (University of Toronto – pastoralist livelihood review authors), Alice Obrecht (ALNAP) and Liz Stites (Feinstein International Center, Tufts University) as they discuss their experiences of humanitarian evidence accessibility, quality and gaps. The chair will help us unpack the evidence generated by the Humanitarian Evidence Programme as we consider such questions as: 

  • What does ‘evidence’ mean for humanitarian research, policy and practice? Whose voices are missing from the programme’s own syntheses and the evidence base at large? 
  • How and where do we find evidence? How might we use it to improve the design, implementation, management, funding, quality and impact of humanitarian programming? 
  • What are the common ‘gap findings’ running through the programme’s systematic reviews? 
  • What can researchers, policymakers and practitioners – from funders through to programme officers, responders and evaluators – do to improve the (shared?) evidence base? 

Send us specific questions of your own when you register for the event or on the day via the webinar chat function. You can also join the #HumanitarianEvidence conversation on Twitter. 

The webinar will be recorded and available at a later date, alongside other programme outputs (including evidence briefs and guides) at:
