It is the International Rescue Committee's mission to respond to the world’s worst crises and help people to survive and rebuild their lives. It is our responsibility to fulfil that mission with the greatest possible degree of effectiveness and efficiency.

We therefore never stop questioning if our programmes work, and asking how they can be improved. Through combining research with hands-on day-to-day experience we develop real expertise. This approach enables us to save lives and jumpstart recovery, achieve optimal use of resources, and increase the likelihood of lasting solutions. By investing in research and evaluation, the IRC advances humanitarian aid, developing a long-term vision to answer fundamental questions about what works and why.

The IRC’s Research, Evaluation and Learning team ensure that we rely on evidence to design and operate our programmes and build evidence about what works in humanitarian and development programmes. The team develops cutting-edge tools and guidelines that enhance the IRC’s ability to monitor and evaluate the quality of work and track performance. They build our capacity for sound data collection and methods of analysis, and for demonstrating with precision the impact of our practitioners.
