Throughout the IFRC, Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies and the wider humanitarian community, there is an increasing recognition of the need and value of collecting and producing evidence to support and enhance humanitarian work across all sectors. Conducting research is an important part of building an evidence base and can make a number of valuable contributions to humanitarian work, including more reliable knowledge about what works and what doesn’t work and why. This can lead to more efficient aid, an increase in impact, heightened credibility of humanitarian work, more accountability and an understanding of future trends.
