Final Evaluation of El Nino Emergency Response


RDI helped Save the Children evaluate climate change relief programs in severely drought-stricken Nusa Tenggara Timur (ENT). The evaluation measured Humanitarian Early Action Response (HEAR) El Nino Indonesia outputs and outcomes to targeted villages and local government policies on early warning and intervention on the issue of drought. The final evaluation also aimed to see changes that happened as a result of the project implementation and what have improved and changed after the HEAR El Nino Indonesia intervention. The main purpose of this project was to assess the effectiveness, relevance, coordination, and coherence as well as sustainability of the project in achieving its intended results. This evaluation found that the use of unconditional cash transfers has proven to be a quick and effective approach in dealing with emergency response situations.
