...we are pleased to announce a new webinar, report and infographic on the potential role of social assistance data, information systems and underlying capacity for shock response! In a context of increasing frequency, size and duration of disasters and crises globally, the limitations of standard approaches to humanitarian response have come to the forefront, causing governments and international agencies to pledge to "use existing resources and capabilities better to shrink humanitarian needs over the long term" (Grand Bargain, 2016). Can existing social assistance data and system help to better identify beneficiaries and more swiftly deliver benefits to them in the aftermath of a shock? Explore our materials to find some answers and useful frameworks/guidance!
