Transforming humanitarian evidence.

Our research is creating safer, more vibrant communities after disaster and conflict.

Our Model

We believe data and evidence can be an agent for positive transformation. Our work seeks to protect lives and promote human development by catalysing evidence on humanitarian and development programming through rigorous research.


We believe in looking beyond the numbers to value the people behind data, using new methods to see problems differently.


We work at the cross-roads of engineering and social inquiry, applying innovative tools to make sense of complexity.


We are committed to bridging the academic and practice divide, ensuring that research translates to policy and practice.
