Evaluating International Humanitarian Action

Raymond Apthorpe John Borton Adrian Wood
Price: $ 22.5

With the number of violent conflicts within countries increasing all the time, as well as other forms of natural and man-made complex emergencies, humanitarian intervention has become a much more frequent form of development assistance. There has also been a corresponding rise in the need to evaluate the effectiveness of such interventions. In this volume, the Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Assistance (ALNAP) has compiled for the first time an examination of the experiences of, and lessons learned by, those practically engaged in humanitarian programme evaluations.

The case studies included in this volume are drawn from four continents, including Central Asia and the Balkans, and they embrace the different kinds of humanitarian emergency that have afflicted so many people during the past decade. The volume addresses the context in which evaluations of humanitarian assistance take place; the actual process of doing evaluations; and the lessons for improving how such evaluations might be better undertaken in future.

This pioneering volume is likely to be of great practical value to agencies and individuals engaged in both the delivery of humanitarian assistance in complex emergencies and its evaluation.
