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.
