Cameroon : Multisectoral evaluation in Logone-et-Chari (Far-North), nov. 2016

Subject/Objective: 
From November 23 to 28, 2016, the International Rescue Committee and Première Urgence Internationale carried out a multi-sectoral field evaluation in the Far North, aiming to better understand the population’s most urgent needs. This document highlights some of the evaluation’s most critical findings.
Key findings: 
Based on the above findings, the IRC and PUI make the following recommendations to humanitarian actors in Logone et Chari:  Promotion of market based programming to address the variety of urgent needs of displaced persons and host community members, such as through unconditional cash transfers.  Beneficiaries should be targeted based on vulnerability, not refugee or IDP status .  Where access to land permits, early recovery programs aiming to help conflict-affected populations resume agropastoral activities should be implemented, taking into account seasonal growing and herding patterns.  Non-functional water pumps should be identi fied and repaired. To promote sustainability, local mechanics should be involved as much as possible, and community-based water point management mechanisms should be put in place.  Latrine construction and use should be promoted and supported, and basic hygiene supplies should be distributed.  Psychosocial and case management services should be made available to survivors of, and women and girls vulnerable to, gender-based violence. Free, quality, and safe medical care should be made available to sexual assault survivors.
