Join the Resilience Evaluation, Analysis and Learning (REAL) award for a presentation on its Interactive Dashboard, Synthesis of Evidence from Resilience Programming.
Since its inception, REAL has conducted extensive resilience research, resulting in the publication of many reports and learning products. Through the Dashboard project, REAL sought to develop a synthesis of both quantitative and qualitative evidence from several of these products into an accessible and practical format for all audiences. REAL worked with the Institute for Development Impact to create this data visualization tool to help measure and analyze the results of resilience-strengthening interventions and humanitarian assistance provided to households in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Niger, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and Nepal.
This event will be held in English.
