In early 2005 Aguaconsult undertook an evaluation of ECHOs actions in the DPRK. The DPRK has been subject to ongoing humanitarian crises since the 1990s.
A five-person team carried out an extensive review of water, sanitation and hygiene promotion interventions in emergency contexts, including both natural disasters and complex emergencies.
The main objective of this evaluation was to assess the results of DG ECHOs support in Uganda. Specifically, this evaluation assessed the extent to which DG ECHO assistance, both overall and by sector has been appropriate and has impacted positively on the targeted population.
This evaluation focuses on strategic issues, as well as implications relating to a phase-down of current DG ECHO operations in Nepal following the recent changes in the political situation in the country.
This evaluation found that despite constraints posed by the current budgetary frameworks and legal mandate, considerable progress on mainstreaming DRR activities has been made by a range of DG ECHO project partners.
