Webinar: What if we really could measure refugee well-being and resilience?

The over-stretched and under-resourced humanitarian system cannot keep pace with the ever-growing needs - necessitating better targeting of assistance and more effective use of limited resources. To do this requires better measurement. 

The Women’s Refugee Commission working with Kellie Leeson at the Development Research Institute at NYU has developed an easy-to-use tool to capture the collective impact of assistance and services – humanitarian, development, and host government - at the refugee household level to measure decreases in refugee vulnerability and improvements in well-being. 

The tool, the Well-Being and Adjustment Index, will be presented along with early data from Lebanon, as well as how the tool compares to other measurement tools and the proposed next steps for moving the humanitarian community forward with more robust, consistent impact measurement.
