Description: Take a closer look at the Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluations (IAHEs) of the response to the crises in the Philippines (Typhoon Haiyan) in 2014 and in the Central African Republic and South Sudan in 2015. The video provides a brief overview of the situations that triggered the Level Three (L3) emergency responses, and presents the questions the IAHEs considered: how relevant and how effective were the responses? Were the expected results achieved? What was the level of engagement of national actors and governments? And which areas need to be strengthened?”
Independent evaluators and a member of the IAHE management group speak about the evaluation findings, as well as good practices and lessons learned identified.
