Samuel Hall East Africa, a consultancy registered in Kenya was commissioned by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) in October 2014, to conduct a mid-term review of the second phase of the Great Lakes Civil Society Project (GLP), a regional programme implemented since January 2010 by DRC with funding from the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
1.1 Background on the project
DRC a key player in a crisis-ridden world

According to the UN, the number of registered Syrian refugees has now passed 3 million people, while 6.5 million are internally displaced in Syria. This means that close to one fifth of the world's 50 million displaced are from Syria. Although the world is witnessing a historic number of serious crises it remains important to keep focusing on the dire humanitarian situation in and around Syria.
The UN World Humanitarian Day is dedicated to the aid-workers stationed in conflict and disaster affected places around the globe. With a historic number of humanitarian crises and a record 50 million people displaced their efforts are more needed than ever.
War and conflict ravages Africa and the Middle East and according to the UN more than 50 million people are displaced worldwide – the highest number since World War II. Humanitarian resources and capacity are under pressure and aid-workers are fighting to keep up with the increasing needs.
A new three-year grant from Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) has just been approved and will enable the Danish Refugee Council to continue its advocacy and policy work in the Great Lakes region of Africa until 2016. The new funding will serve to strengthen the efforts of DRC and its partner organisations and to consolidate the results reached in the region since 2010.
