ODI – Syria crisis response: lessons learned (London + live streamed)

April 14, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Syria crisis response: lessons learned


The Syria crisis has entered its fifth year with no end in sight. The crisis has produced a wave of displacement of a magnitude not seen since World War II. More than 12 million people are currently in need of humanitarian assistance including 7.6 million internally displaced. But how effective has the humanitarian response proven to be?

Despite the magnitude, severity and impact of this crisis, there has been no system-wide evaluation of the humanitarian response. In lieu of this, the inter-agency Syria Coordinated Accountability and Lessons Learned (CALL) has conducted a mapping exercise of evaluative studies on the Syria crisis, followed by a Thematic Synthesis and Gap Analysis study to try to fill in some of our knowledge.

On behalf of the Inter Agency Humanitarian Evaluation steering group, ALNAP hosts a panel discussion on the findings of this major study, which highlights the lack of analysis around key themes and issues.
