Description of project

This ex-post evaluation has been managed by the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) supported by Danish Refugee Council on behalf of the IASC and funded by Danida, DFID, SDC, and SIDA.

The Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) for Somalia initiated an inter-agency evaluation of the collective international response in South Central Somalia, to identify best practices and lessons learned from the response to date. The evaluation is intended to inform both strategic discussions within the IASC and between the IASC and the donors on the wider humanitarian response and future strategy for aid delivery in Somalia; as well as provide concrete operational input and guidance to Clusters and individual agencies for their future programming.

The evaluation has followed a deductive analysis based on a mixed methods approach for data collection.
