Register to the new free e-learning on Evaluating Humanitarian Action

ALNAP and UNICEF, in collaboration with EvalPartners and UNEG, are pleased to announce the launch of an introductory e-learning course on Evaluating Humanitarian Action (EHA). Expanding on the ALNAP Pilot Guide on ‘Evaluating Humanitarian Action’, this e-learning is the first of its kind. This course offers an overview of evaluation practice in humanitarian contexts, and features concrete guidance, tips and insights from experienced practitioners.


The e-learning is composed of the following 10 units:

  1. Introducing EHA
  2. Planning for utilisation
  3. Evaluation design
  4. Inception phase
  5. Desk review
  6. Engaging affected people
  7. Field methods: Evaluation under constraints
  8. Real-time evaluations
  9. Humanitarian impact evaluations
  10. Analysis, outputs, dissemination and take-up

 The instructors are two EHA specialists: Margie Buchanan-Smith and John Cosgrave.  John and Margie have been delivering training on evaluating humanitarian action for over fifteen years and also co-authored the ALNAP Pilot Guide.

The e-learning is free and open to all interested evaluators, managers and users of evaluations of humanitarian action. No specific prior knowledge of humanitarian action or evaluation is required. You can access the course online from your personal or work computer anywhere in the world. The course includes online lectures, readings and tests. After successfully finishing all 10 units, participants will receive a certificate of completion.


The course will open in early March 2015, pre-register now at: 


Warm regards and enjoy the course!
