Promoting an evidence based approach to humanitarian action at the World Humanitarian Summit

22 Organisations of the Evidence Lounge support the commitment to the World Humanitarian Summit

Today, the Evidence Lounge submitted a commitment to the World Humanitarian Summit in support of a more evidence based approach to humanitarian action. Twenty two organisations committed to the following:

“We commit to taking concrete steps to ensure that humanitarian action is based on high quality evidence. We will do this by investing in research and the collection, synthesis and analysis of data, by improving the quality and accessibility of this evidence, and by adopting better practices and systems to use and value evidence. We commit to developing this more evidence-based humanitarian sector through collaborations that are multi-national, multi-organisational and multi-sectoral.”
