Impact evaluation studies affect the lives of millions of people across the world in multiple sectors. Performing evaluation the ‘right way’ contributes to the understanding of which development interventions and programmes work best for the poor, and why. With this mantra in mind, we are kicking off the first talk of the Impact evaluation group. This paper develops a rigorous impact evaluation methodology to target delivery mechanisms, impacts and possible adverse consequences of humanitarian emergencies. Further it enhances understandings on aid effectiveness and provides a substantive evidence base for policy makers to develop practical solutions to improve humanitarian assistance.
