Evaluations in humanitarian settings during Covid-19

Reflections on the generation and use of evidence in humanitarian, conflict and fragile state settings with insights on Covid-19 additional challenges.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, organisations focussed on disaster response and relief in humanitarian settings will have seen a health crisis being compounded by an economic crisis and in some countries, a food crisis.

Ruth Hill of the Centre for Disaster Protection will discuss an evidence gap analysis the Centre is doing in collecting and synthesizing evidence to respond to crises and disasters.

Kevin Watkins of Save the Children will talk about the generation and use of evidence that matters in humanitarian, conflict and fragile state settings to address complex questions.

There will be an opportunity for questions and comments from the audience during the discussion.
