We promote the use of evidence and learning in operational and policy responses to protect and strengthen the lives, livelihoods, and dignity of people affected by or at risk of humanitarian crises.

We work with crisis-affected people to generate and share evidence and learning about crises, the experiences of people impacted by them, and the systems at affect people’s abilities to recover. At the same time, we are improving our understanding of the ways in which evidence is used, accepted, or overlooked and why rigorous evidence is often interpreted in different ways. With this knowledge, we are developing new research processes to ensure that decision-makers are aware of, trust, and understand research and how it can inform their choices. We use this knowledge to promote learning, foster dialogue, and influence decision-makers whose work impacts affected populations.

Our strategic priorities are described below.
