Conflicts, natural disasters caused by climate change, and the COVID-19 crisis have escalated humanitarian needs, with an adverse effect on women and girls. As part of its ongoing humanitarian response, UNFPA is increasingly contributing to the generation, provision and utilization of humanitarian data, for informed decisions and accountability, to reach the furthest behind.
A baseline study and evaluability assessment have been conducted, to lay the groundwork for a forthcoming centralized evaluation of the UNFPA support to data for humanitarian action, and to determine its scope and technical feasibility.
This study also takes stock of the strategic positioning of UNFPA, provides a comprehensive mapping of UNFPA supported interventions and proposes key building blocks for the development of a theory of change for the work of UNFPA in the field of humanitarian data.
The study also provides short term ‘options for action’ for UNFPA Humanitarian Office and other business units to consider with regard to humanitarian data.
