Report

Published on 31 Oct 2012 View Original

In 2011, East Africa suffered from one of the worst droughts in 60 years which left more than 13 million people in need of food, water and emergency healthcare.

Canadian donors contributed $14 million to the Humanitarian Coalition’s joint appeal for East Africa's drought of 2011. These funds helped to set up activities such as the delivery of emergency food, basic healthcare, and water sanitation kits. Nutrition centres and child education programs also played a significant role in the response.

As part of its commitment to transparency and accountability, the Humanitarian Coalition conducts a series of evaluations both to measure impact and identify lessons learned.

This report represents a summary of the learning from the Final Evaluation related specifically to the cash transfer projects implemented by the member agencies of the Canadian Humanitarian Coalition and CIDA East Africa Drought Response. Detailed and specific recommendations have been provided on cash transfers to each of the agencies in country level agency specific reports, and this report concentrates on the wider lessons learned and regional recommendations.
