Evaluations & Technical Assistance

Helping governments and organizations understand the impact of their aid efforts

The United States is recognized as a leader in the area of evaluations and learning, and promoting innovation. We hope to use our experience to consolidate and solidify this leadership by working more closely with US actors, building a culture of learning and accountability in humanitarian action.

DARA has carried out evaluations of humanitarian aid in more than 50 countries. Through our evaluations and technical assistance, we help governments and international aid organizations evaluate and understand how their programs contribute to improving the lives of people affected by disasters and conflicts.

Our approach combines rigorous desk and field research and participatory methods to identify strengths and areas for improvement and develop practical recommendations to improve the effectiveness of aid efforts. DARA specializes in real-time, system-wide, impact, policy and program evaluations.
