Using Humanitarian Evaluations for Development Programs in HDP Coherence
Evaluations of humanitarian programs –when they occur– can offer critical insights for future response, relief, and recovery efforts, as well as longer-term development activities. Learnings on how to effectively build resilience through recovery efforts or identifying which communities are most vulnerable in the face of shocks are just a couple examples of evidence from humanitarian evaluations that can inform development programming. This session will explore challenges and opportunities for improved socialization of evaluations and learnings from humanitarian and emergency responses among development practitioners for increased utilization in the design and implementation of longer-term resilience programming.
Country-based M&E practitioners will share the challenges they face when working to internalize evaluation learning and transferring knowledge. Participants will be invited to collectively think through barriers and enablers for a broader use of humanitarian evaluations by development practitioners.
