Summative evaluation of child-centred disaster risk reduction project (Afghanistan)

Source(s):  United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)

The object of the evaluation is a joint venture of UNICEF and Save the Children Afghanistan titled: ‘Child-Centred Disaster Risk Reduction (CCDRR) Project'. The CCDRR project was conceived and implemented with the aim to strengthen the capacities of communities, relevant government institutions (particularly those responsible for disaster management), civil society organizations (CSOs), teachers and children (in schools) to understand, mitigate, and prepare for natural disaster risks.

The goal of the CCDRR project was, “to build the resilience of communities in Afghanistan to natural disasters through a community-led child-based approach to disaster risk reduction (DRR)”. The CCDRR project was implemented in 12 districts of Balkh, Jawzjan, and Saripul from November 2012 to March 2015. The community and school based risk management component was implemented in 120 disaster prone communities and 52 schools. The target groups included communities (men, women, boys, girls and older persons), teachers, education managers, students at schools, and staff of relevant public departments and CSOs at national, provincial and district levels.

The principal purpose of this summative evaluation was to have an objective assessment of the overall effectiveness of the project strategies and activities with respect to improved resilience of the Afghan communities, especially children. Moreover, it was expected to inform country strategies, national and international DRR policies and practices for both the SCI and the UNICEF.
