  A key partner of the CDAC Network, the Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action (ALNAP) has published the content of its 28th Annual Conference. Presentations, videos and podcasts from senior humanitarian practitioners are now all available on ALNAP’s ‘Virtual Space’. The theme of the conference, held in March, was ‘Evidence and Knowledge in Humanitarian Action’ and events over the two days focused on the challenges of gathering and using knowledge in humanitarian contexts. Over 150 participants from 35 countries attended the event in Washington. CDAC Network members including Save the Children, and World Vision International presented evidence on the fundamental role that data and evidence represent in humanitarian crises. Below are some videos/podcasts from the event. Rahel Sharp from World Vision International discusses why the ALNAP conference was useful. Kate Burns from OCHA looks at how accountability can improve coordination.   For a more detailed summary of the background and recommendations of this meeting, download the background paper or visit the ALNAP website.
