We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.

Today, 5 September 2018 we’ve launched a funding call: ‘taking a local perspective on measuring the impact of GBV programming in emergencies’.

This is our second challenge specifically focusing on creating and stimulating innovation approaches to tackling GBV in emergencies, using targeted resources and partnership brokering.

The Problem

Evaluating impact is challenging; practitioners are constrained by time, funding, skills, and the sector lacks a clear overarching framework for measuring the impact of humanitarian response to GBV. Having better data on the impact of GBV interventions can provide a stronger evidence base for ‘what works’ within GBV programming and support replication of effective services at scale.

Our Approach

Building evidence on the impact of GBV programmes is a complex problem. A fully developed understanding requires both global and more local perspectives to be heard.

Core to Elrha’s commitments as a member of the GBV Call to Action is our ambition to make a significant contribution to this critical, persistent problem faced by the GBV community. Our approach explores problem recognition and ideation at a more local and operational level, and engages with those familiar with, and active in, these settings, for example through the Cluster system. See our HIF Strategy 2018-2020 – in particular section 3 on ‘Local Engagement’.

The Challenge

We are seeking to support up to five Consortia with grants of up to £50,000 each. Our aim is to generate new contextual perspectives and insights to inform and progress the global agenda on GBV.

We aim to open up a critical space for actors working on humanitarian GBV at community, national and/or regional level to reflect collectively on current impact measurement practices in their specific contexts and identify fresh lines of enquiry or approach.
