From evidence to practice: Findings from systematic reviews on key humanitarian interventions

On the 17th October @ 14h30 BST Elizabeth Parker (Independent – Shelter) and Victoria Maynard (Habitat for Humanity and University College London – Shelter), and Ronak Patel (Harvard Humanitarian Initiative – urban crises), will be discussing the findings of their reviews and synthesis of the research evidence on ‘What can we learn about identifying and prioritizing vulnerable people from shelter self-recovery and urban response evidence?’. A discussant and chair (Lucy Earle – DIFD) will help unpack and explore the evidence:

–        What examples emerge of good practice and successful interventions?

–        What do we know about what works and what doesn’t in terms of identifying and prioritizing those most in need? How do we classify and contextualize ‘vulnerability’ in practice?

–        What data can governments and humanitarian agencies collect before, during, and after a crisis that might help improve humanitarian response in urban contexts or shelter self-recovery?

–        What are the gaps in the evidence base and what can researchers and practitioners do to generate better evidence in the future?

This webinar is part of a series sharing the findings from the Humanitarian Evidence Programme – a partnership between Oxfam and the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University, funded through the Humanitarian Innovation and Evidence Programme at DFID. Further webinars include:
