K4DD Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summary No.2 

8th May 2024
Author: Luke Kelly

This is the 2nd monthly K4DD Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summary, signposting to the latest relevant evidence and discourse on humanitarian action to inform and support their response.

It is the result of one day of work per month and is not intended to be a comprehensive summary of available evidence on humanitarian action but aims to make original documents easily accessible to decision-makers that, if relevant to them, they could refer to before making decisions.

Given the wide range of topics covered, this monthly summary includes guidelines, blogs, news articles, dashboards, data, and editorials, in addition to policy and academic literature. Resources are selected based on their relevance to the themes of protect, prioritise and prevent. Entries are categorised as evidence (academic peer-reviewed articles or reports that have gone through a quality assurance process); discourse (opinion and discussion of key issues in the humanitarian sector); and policies and guidelines (newly published policies and guidelines on humanitarian response).

The sources included are found through searches of academic literature, humanitarian think tanks, resource hubs and NGO websites. The searches are restricted to articles published in the previous month, in English. This is complemented by email recommendations from FCDO advisors and leading experts. It is the result of 1 day of work per month and is not intended to be a comprehensive summary of available evidence on humanitarian action but aims to make original documents easily accessible to decision-makers.
