Evaluation of FAO’s role and work in Disaster Risk Reduction
In January 2012, at the request of the Programme Committee, OED launched the evaluation of FAO’s work and role in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). The evaluation covers the period 2006-2011 and the work by all units identified within FAO that are responsible for contributing to DRR; it also considers ongoing and planned commitments in order to provide forward looking recommendations. The evaluation examines the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability of FAO’s role and work in DRR in both Latin America and the Caribbean and Asia. The evaluation pays specific attention to both the field programme in selected countries and to the production and utilization of FAO’s normative work in DRR. The evaluation is carried out by an independent multidisciplinary team led by Fundación DARA and supported and integrated by OED. The final report is expected for March 2013.
