Social Terrain will be hosting Europe’s next annual 3-day Evaluation of Humanitarian Action (EHA) training workshop given by the highly experienced evaluators and trainers Margie Buchanan-Smith and John Cosgrave. Margie and John are co-authors of the seminal Evaluation of Humanitarian Action Guide (ALNAP, 2016) – The Guide will be the foundation for this training.

The overall aim of the training workshop is to make evaluations more effective in contributing to the improved performance of humanitarian interventions and to enhance the quality of the evaluation process. This course is recommended for evaluators, managers and users of evaluations. Previous evaluation experience is not necessary, but some knowledge and experience of humanitarian action is required.

Learning Outcomes:

• Greater clarity of the purpose and objectives of EHA, and of the principal challenges of doing EHA.
• Better understanding about how to select your evaluation questions, and of the most relevant frameworks against which humanitarian assistance should be evaluated.
• A practical approach to planning, designing, implementing and following through on evaluations of humanitarian assistance.

Program Outline

• The purpose of EHA: what is the reason for evaluating humanitarian action? What can evaluation achieve?
• Initiating and planning EHA – what steps should you take when commissioning and planning an evaluation, to ensure it is utilization-focused?
• Evaluation questions – how do you select your evaluation questions, and relate them to the standard evaluation criteria?
• Frameworks for evaluation – What frameworks can you use to assess performance against broader policies and standards?
• Evaluation methods – what are the typical evaluation methods in EHA? How can you use both qualitative methods and quantitative methods? Speci cally, how can you consult with the a ected population?
• When access is constrained: how do you evaluate when you have limited or no access to affected people and geographical areas?
• Management – How can you manage the evaluation process to produce a robust evaluation? What challenges are you likely to encounter?
• From Data to Reports – How do you turn the findings from your fieldwork into a useful evaluation report?
• Use and dissemination of EHA – How can you promote real change based on your evaluation?
• Ethics – What ethical dilemmas are you likely to face and how can you deal with them?
