The International Rescue Committee is dedicated to ensuring our programs improve lives and livelihoods, and help people affected by crisis recover and prosper.

While improving accurate, meaningful measurement can be challenging, the IRC is proving that it is both a practical and possible goal. To do this, we are rolling out the Outcomes and Evidence Framework: a set of tools for IRC staff to ensure our programs are outcomes-based and driven by the best available evidence that proves what interventions do and do not work to achieve those outcomes. 

Beyond this commitment to improving how we operate, the IRC is also sharing this approach with other practitioners, donors and any interested parties through the interactive Outcomes and Evidence Framework.
