Real-time Evaluations of Humanitarian Action - an ALNAP Guide. Pilot version.

This guide helps evaluation managers to commission and oversee, and team leaders to conduct, Real-time evaluations (RTEs) of humanitarian operational responses. A RTE is a rapid participatory exercise carried out during the early stages of a humanitarian response. RTEs differ from other forms of evaluation because its products are intended to be used in real-time.

ALNAP Guide: Evaluation of Protection in Humanitarian Action

This companion to the ALNAP EHA Guide offers protection-specific insights for evaluations and evaluation commissioners across the humanitarian sector. Challenges addressed include those arising from the multi-faceted nature of protection activities, the difficulty of understanding cause-effect relationships underlying protection risks, and the challenges of accessing and managing very sensitive data.

Evaluating Humanitarian Action

Evaluating Humanitarian Action

Humanitarian action is any activity taken with the objective of saving lives, alleviating suffering, and maintaining human dignity during and after human-induced crises and disasters resulting from natural hazards. Humanitarian action also includes prevention and preparation for these.  Humanitarian action includes both the provision of assistance (such as food, healthcare and shelter) and the protection of crisis-affected populations from violations of their rights (as defined by human rights law, international humanitarian law, and refugee law, see ALNAP, 2016).
