H2H Network case study: Haiti activation 2021This case study explores how the H2H Fund activation for the earthquake that occurred in Haiti on 14 August 2021 was able to rapidly fill gaps in the humanitarian response. As part of a series of case studies, it also contributes to a wider evidence-based learning process which aims to strengthen the H2H Network’s activities and ensure their continued relevance and appropriateness. The study was conducted in February 2022 for the H2H Network by an independent consultant.
H2H Annual Report 2021The collaboration and innovation fostered by the H2H Network is changing the face of humanitarian aid. Throughout the year 2021, the network developed new solutions to both the existing and undiscovered problems facing the humanitarian system; simultaneously delivering services and creating new ways of working. We connected the dots, acting as both advocates and service providers. What is exciting is that we are just getting started. Read about 2021 in review.
The H2H Network Strategy 2022-2025This strategy seeks to distil from consultation with the membership and other stakeholders, the central network functions1 that the H2H network aims to fulfil in the next three years, and the focus areas that will contribute to this. To further guide our action, we have developed a set of simple rules2 for each priority area of the strategy, to aid decision making in the face of strategic choices and changes in the external context. Finally, we have outlined what success will look like at the end of the period, to aid measurement and accountability.
Findings from the systematic review of evaluations by H2H Network member organisationsThis systematic review assessed the evidence of the Humanitarian to Humanitarian (H2H) organisation model’s effectiveness in action; its alignment with the broad strategic aims of the network; and, its contribution to humanitarian action globally. To conduct this review, Bodhi Global Analysis systematically reviewed the H2H body of evidence - in the form of documentation and key informant interviews (KIIs) - against the Review Questions (RQs). Assessment utilised a systematic quantitative document review (against RQs and internal/external criteria), and qualitative synthesis.
H2H Network case study: Tigray II activationThis case study explores how a second H2H Fund activation for the conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia contributed to an improved humanitarian response in Ethiopia and in Sudan. As part of a series of case studies, the study also contributes to a lessons learned process, aiming to strengthen the work of the H2H Network and ensure its continued relevance. The study was conducted in December 2021 by an independent consultant. A variety of sources including 8 key informant interviews, 4 project reports and 9 additional documents informed this case study.
H2H Network case study: oPt activation 2022This case study explores how the H2H Network Fund activation for the May 2021 escalation of the conflict in the occupied Palestine territories (oPt) was able to rapidly fill gaps in the humanitarian response. As part of a series of case studies, the study also contributes to a lesson learned process. The series aims to strengthen the H2H Network’s activities and ensure their continued relevance and appropriateness. The study was conducted in January 2022 for the H2H Network by an independent consultant. A variety of sources including 10 key informant interviews, 9 project reports, the grant panel activation meeting recording (see box below, “The H2H Network Fund activation: How it works”) , and 16 additional documents informed the study.
H2H Network case study: Tigray I activationThis case study explores how the H2H Fund activation for the conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia contributed to an improved humanitarian response in Ethiopia and in Sudan. As part of a series of case studies, the study also contributes to a lessons learned process. This process aims to strengthen the H2H Network’s activities and ensure their continued relevance and appropriateness. The study was conducted in November 2021 for the H2H Network by an independent consultant. A variety of sources including 10 key informant interviews, 8 project reports, a collaboration call1 recording and 9 additional documents informed the study.
Get Ready Fund case studyThis case study explores how the H2H’s ‘Get Ready Fund’ activation in 2020-2021 contributed added value to humanitarian action. It examines how the H2H Fund activation and H2H Member projects made potential contributions to improving the humanitarian system. The study was conducted in June 2021 for the H2H Network by Itad MEAL advisers, using mid-term narrative reports from five grantees, six interviews with project managers, and one interview with the H2H Core Team. The study relies on self-reporting by the grantees (which does not allow for triangulation) and sometimes reflects the understanding of the analyst without further validation or review.
H2H MEAL Model and GuideIn the complex ecosystem of international humanitarian actors, ‘global humanitarian services’ (HGS) offer specialised technical services to other humanitarian actors with the intention of strengthening the quality and/or accountability of humanitarian action. Monitoring, evaluation, accountability, and learning (MEAL) models available to HGS actors are often unsuitable because they are devised for humanitarian response activities. The six elements synthesize this material and are intended as a starting point for developing further tailored MEAL solutions and future iterations. It is a working document, designed to be adapted to H2H organizations' resources, capacities and ambition.
