DFID has commissioned a mapping and political economy study on the
production and utilisation of humanitarian evidence in Kenya, Uganda and
the East African region. The aim of the study is to identify the key
stakeholders commissioning, conducting and brokering humanitarian
research activities and understand how decision makers interpret and use
evidence. It will inform DFID’s understanding of the humanitarian
research and evidence landscape in East Africa and identify potential
opportunities for DFID (and other actors) to support the strengthening
of research capacity and uptake in the region.
