In 2022, an estimated 274 million people will need humanitarian assistance and protection. With the ongoing escalation of humanitarian crises and the continuing COVID-19 crisis, high-quality data plays a crucial role in delivering timely and effective humanitarian assistance, informing evidence-based adaptation of humanitarian programmes and bolstering accountability. 

With a rise in refugees, internally displaced persons, stateless persons and host communities, accurate, country-owned and disaggregated data in humanitarian crises is critical to reach the furthest behind first. Utilization of this data within the humanitarian response community leads to more informed and responsive decision-making, adaptation for results, improved accountability and increased transparency.

To enhance the evaluability of the forthcoming centralized evaluation of the UNFPA support to data for humanitarian action, the Evaluation Office has undertaken a baseline study and evaluability assessment of data in humanitarian assistance. This study takes stock of the current strategic positioning of UNFPA in the field of data for humanitarian assistance and will help to inform the scope and overall approach of the forthcoming evaluation.
