World Humanitarian Day 2018
Over 200 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance across the world today. In 2017, the UN-coordinated appeals reported a shortfall of 41 per cent, despite receiving a record amount of funding. As the demands on these limited funds increase, there is a concurrent increase in the need for high-quality evidence on the most effective ways to improve humanitarian programming.
The brief summarises the findings of a systematic review of the effectiveness oftwo main approaches to targetting populations in programmes and policies to reduce barriers to accessing WASH services and strategies during the MDGs.The review includes evidence from 11 Sub-Saharan African and South Asian countries.

3ie’s Humanitarian Assistance Thematic Window (HATW) aims to produce high-quality evidence to help inform policy and programming in the humanitarian sector. 3ie is supporting impact evaluations and synthesising evidence to understand what is effective and efficient in delivering programmes in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, including what can help to improve recovery and build resilience. We are funding studies that use innovative approaches, are gender responsive and equity focused, and adhere to the ethical standards in evaluation research with vulnerable populations.

This study by Gilligan and Roy examines the impacts of two transfer modalities linked to school enrolment on children’s cognitive and non-cognitive development in Karamoja, Uganda. The study finds that, while multiple-micronutrient-fortified food transfers had no significant impact, cash transfers led to a significant increase in cognitive measures of children by about nine percentage points relative to the control group.
