ECB Project in new ELRHA Online Guide to Academic/Humanitarian Partnerships
Published on 26 April 2012
On April 17, ELRHA (Enhancing Learning and Research for Humanitarian Assistance) launched a new online guide to constructing effective partnerships between academic and humanitarian organisations.
The ELRHA Guide to Constructing Effective Partnerships is based on the organisation’s report "Effective Academic-Humanitarian Collaboration: A Practical Resource to Support Academic and Humanitarian Organisations Working Together" and draws on the evidence base of six core case studies.
The first of these examines the collaboration between the University of East Anglia and Oxfam, the latter working on behalf of the ECB Project, to create “an evidence-based methodology and practical guidance on impact assessment for field staff across the sector”. This new impact measurement methodology has been undergoing field-testing in Guatemala and will eventually become part of ECB’s Good Enough Guide to Impact Measurement, to be released later in 2012.
Hosted by the Humanitarian Practice Network at the London headquarters of the Overseas Development Institute, the launch event brought together representatives from a wide variety of academic and humanitarian actors.
Speakers at the event included:
- Dr. Roger Few (School of International Development, the University of East Anglia)
- The Hon. Nicola Dahrendorf (Centre for the International Politics of Conflict, Human Rights and Justice, School of Oriental and African Studies)
- Frances Hill of ELRHA
- Dr. Joanna Macrae (UK Department for International Development)
The ELRHA Guide to Constructing Effective Partnerships is available now both as an online resource and as a free Android smartphone application for use in poor coverage areas (search “ELRHA Effective Partnerships”).
The Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS), with support from ECB agencies and other stakeholders, under the overall coordination of the Humanitarian Country Task Team (HCTT), is in the process of organizing a joint needs assessment (JNA) in Bangladesh.
