Training & Learning

Humanitarian Analysis Learning Lab

Join us to learn data analytics with free online training

Humanitarian Analysis Bootcamp 

RedR is offering a free 10-week training programme to develop your skills in humanitarian analysis, alongside our partners at ACAPS and kindly supported by USAID, from the American People. 

Analysis saves lives in humanitarian crisis. Yet so many decisions are not based on proper analysis of the best data.  

Invest ten weeks in your data analysis capacity and invest in the quality of your support for people affected by disaster. Commit 4 - 5 hours per week for the ten-week programme – and see transformation in your capacity to analyse and use data in humanitarian contexts.

With combined facilitated and self-paced sessions over ten weeks, coached by a qualified facilitator, learn to get the right data, make sense of it, and provide evidence to ensure assistance reaches those most in need in disaster contexts.

Learn the processes, skills, and knowledge to conduct quality analysis, and cover the basic principles of humanitarian analysis. We’ll equip you to use and apply key methodologies. 

You will:   

  • Identify the crucial role of humanitarian analysis in decision-making and how to increase its impact.   
  • Understand the foundations of analysis, including how to plan for analysis, using practical tools, and communicating results.   
  • Develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to become a humanitarian analyst, including recognising biases and strategies to avoid them.   
  • Practice analytical and sense making techniques and engage in collaborative analysis. 


Who should join us? 

We welcome participants globally to this online training with a broad range of ages, roles, and experience. We especially welcome participants from local and national NGOs, and those who wouldn’t otherwise have the means to fund such training. 

This training is especially relevant for: 

  • Entry-level information analysts interested in moving into humanitarian work. 
  • Humanitarian professionals with limited data analysis experience 
  • Mid-career humanitarian professionals with practical analytical experience but limited formal training. 
  • Experienced humanitarian workers with limited data literacy. 

If you see yourself here or you’re a curious humanitarian with a different background – we urge you to register! 

The Humanitarian Analysis Learning Lab (HALL) project 

This training forms part of a wider project we’ve undertaken to increase data and decision-making capacity in the humanitarian sector Training Platform for Analytical Capacity in the Humanitarian Sector – in collaboration with our partners at ACAPS and kindly supported by USAID, from the American People. 

Supporting Humanitarian Decision Makers 

The HALL project provides training for decision-makers. Good and unbiased evidence is useful for more effective decision-making but not sufficient. It matters as well how decision makers process it. The humanitarian decision-making process often appears

like a black box, where evidence goes in and a decision comes out. HALL wants to open-up the black box and help decision-makers in the sector to reflect on the underlying dynamics of humanitarian decision-making, mitigate biases and make better and more effective use of evidence. 

Alumni Network 

We believe that the quality of analysis improves and is less biased when analysts work together. There is a huge potential for sharing expertise, creating knowledge, peer support and professional networking for the benefit of the whole sector and ultimately the people in need. This is why we want to connect and convene analysts by creating a common space for all HALL alumni. We tap into these synergies by organizing and encouraging initiatives like local live events, webinars, round-tables, online fora, and other opportunities to share experiences and knowledge.
