Development Initiatives (DI) will hold a dissemination workshop to discuss the findings of a recent political economy study mapping study humanitarian evidence systems.
The study aimed to identify the key stakeholders commissioning, conducting and brokering humanitarian research activities and understand how decision-makers interpret and use evidence.
It found that research and evaluation (R&E) appears to have a limited strategic function and value in the humanitarian landscape in the East Africa region. The R&E system tends to operate independently of host governments and local actors at all levels and is driven by donors.
Format and speakers
The event will start with a presentation of the findings by the research team. Thereafter a panel discussion from a range of experts in academia, government and non-state actors will be moderated under Chatham House Rule.
