Description of project

The Tsunami Evaluation Coalition (TEC) was created as an initiative to promote a comprehensive cross sector approach to evaluate the relief, reconstruction, and development aspects of the response to the Tsunami. The purpose of the TEC is to set up mechanisms and procedures to establish a coordinated approach to evaluation in the future, while at the same time serve as a means to facilitate sharing sector-wide lessons learned.

This thematic funding study was organized to provide a comprehensive analysis of the overall funding activity by analysing the role that key state donors and UN agencies played in the crises’ relief efforts. The objective was to assess the appropriateness and volume of the financial contribution analysing different aspects of the allocation of funds as well as fundraising activities. The evaluation utilised case studies from 11 donor countries who voluntarily contributed to participate, among the donors, the study also included the European Commission. DARA also prepared a synthesis report compiling information from all donor funding studies.
