The humanitarian community has come under increased pressure to achieve more meaningful results and demonstrate impact through protection programming, mindful that the current practice often tends to replicate programs across contexts without adequate investment in analysis or consideration of what actions are necessary to reduce the specific risks different people face in a specific context. Results-based approaches rely on better analysis and synthesis of risk patterns, and better diagnosis of the roles of different actors. With this information, we can better undertake context-specific problem-solving and outcome-oriented program design.

New research from ALNAP has explored the potential of using tools to better understand context and how this can improve response (looking at the complex and interconnected dynamics of urban crises, specifically). This webinar will present key findings from ALNAP’s new study ‘What’s Missing? Adding Context to the Urban Response Toolbox’ and feature presentations from two organizations currently using context-specific analysis tools. The webinar will invite audience participants to ask questions and share their own experiences as they pertain to analysis of context.
