Evidence Webinar: What can we learn about identifying and prioritizing vulnerable people from shelter self-recovery and urban response evidence?

Tuesday, Oct 17, 2017 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM EDT

Join the Humanitarian Evidence Programme team, review authors Elizabeth Parker (Independent – Shelter), Victoria Maynard (University College London – Shelter) and Ronak Patel (Harvard Humanitarian Initiative – urban crises), and Lucy Earle (Urban Crises Programme, DFID), to discuss the findings of two reviews and syntheses of the research 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?

You can send us specific questions of your own when you register for the event (see final question on the registration form below) or on the day via the webinar chat function. You can also join the #HumanitarianEvidence conversation on Twitter. The webinar will be recorded and available at a later date, alongside other program outputs (including evidence briefs and guides) here
