Description of project

DARA was commissioned by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to conduct a Real-time Evaluation of DEC member agencies’ performance in response to the 2010 Pakistan Floods. The floods affected approximately 20 million people, more than the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, 2005 Kashmir earthquake and 2010 Haiti earthquake combined. The evaluation aimed to assess DEC Member Agencies’ performance against the objectives of the appeal, provide confirmation that programmes were conducted in accordance with Sector standards, identify major challenges faced by DEC Member Agencies in responding to the needs presented by the emergency, and summarise key learning and action against previous learning drawn from Members’ reports.
