In collaboration with the UK Humanitarian Innovation Hub (UKHIH), with support from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), Humanitarian Outcomes is leading a program to conduct rapid analytical reviews to help inform and steer humanitarian responses in new or newly exacerbated crises. The analyses produced focus on one or two critical issue areas where research efforts have the potential to make the greatest policy or operational impact.
For each review, a team led by HO and including various international experts and institutional partners conducts key informant interviews, reviews relevant literature and data, and, as appropriate, implements surveys of affected populations and/or aid providers. HO data assets and tools provide quantitative data as relevant on operational presence and coverage (GDHO), affected population perspectives (CORE), and operational security (AWSD).
