Spotlight | World Humanitarian Day 2019: the importance of effectiveness evidence

As crises, conflicts and natural disasters continue to rise humanitarian agencies are recognising the importance of having evidence to help them improve their effectiveness. 
Drawing from our Humanitarian Assistance Evidence Programme, here are our latest impact evaluations on community resilience through humanitarian aid in Pakistan and evaluations of the World Food Programme’s interventions to treat malnutrition in Niger, Sudan and Chad

Evidence impact from 3ie-funded studies


3ie-supported evidence informs WFP's global nutrition policy and operational strategy 

The World Food Programme is using evidence from a 3ie working paper that synthesises findings and lessons from four 3ie-supported impact evaluations of the organisation's interventions to improve nutrition and food security outcomes in the Sahel. The working paper includes clear, actionable recommendations that are being used to improve the organisation’s global nutrition policy (2017-21) and operational strategies in the Sahel and globally. Forging better partnerships to enhance operational effectiveness, context-specific layering of different types of interventions following a nutrition situation analysis and improving cost data collection are among the several changes that have been informed by this evidence.

3ie Delhi Evidence Week 2019

Beyond good intentions: from action to impact, New Delhi, 6-7 November

We will be hosting a one-and-a-half-day conference highlighting our innovative leadership and support for evidence production and impact in helping reduce poverty and improve lives in Asia. It will bring together leading researchers, high-level policymakers, programme managers and donors to share evidence and lessons, explore challenges and demonstrate how high-quality evidence is informing decision-making. We will organise engaging sessions on nutrition, sanitation, rural livelihoods, and women’s empowerment. We will also host an innovative panel discussion with philanthropists working in the region. The focus will be on how evaluation and evidence can improve their impact.  

We will regularly post updates our webpage and on social media. Follow us @3ienews on Twitter.
