  • Source(s): DARA - Spain
  • Publication date: 2014
  • Number of pages: 115 p.

This evaluation presents evidence of the Secretariat of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR)'s improvements in disaster risk management (DRM) performance in five countries (Guatemala, Malawi, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Vietnam) and analyzes the implications for the theoretical model that sustains its approach and the current Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Framework.

In particular, the evaluation sought to fulfill following objectives: (a) identify if program outputs are contributing to expected (and unexpected) improvements in DRM performance in a sample of priority, disaster-prone countries participating in the GFDRR program; (b) test whether the assumptions made in defining expected program effects hold true; and (c) draw lessons learned and make recommendations on: (i) the M&E Framework, including whether (and how) to adjust indicators for improved program design and evaluation; and (ii) the development of the program theory model.
