This report provides baseline results from the formative phase of the three-year external evaluation, conducted by a team at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI), of the DEPP.
Remote sensing analysis by humanitarian organizations to detect and document changes related to displaced population camps has been employed, in various iterations, by the field for as long as two decades. The use of remote sensing to support responses to civilian displacement can prove valuable for site planning, identifying patterns of population change, and capturing key data for program planning and evaluation purposes.
In 2010, Ushahidi collaborated with partners to create the Uchaguzi-Kenya platform (an Ushahidi instance). It provided a channel for Kenyan citizens to communicate openly about the 2010 Kenyan referendum. The project was a success and opened up opportunities for future learning. The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, Knight Foundation and Ushahidi came together to identify these successes and challenges. The outcomes of this learning and evaluation project aim to help plan for future Uchaguzi instances and share learning to the broader user community.
