IASC Inter-agency Humanitarian Evaluation of the Typhoon Haiyan Response

The Inter-agency Humanitarian Evaluation (IAHE) of the Typhoon Haiyan Response aims to provide an independent assessment of the extent to which collective objectives set in the Strategic Response Plan (SRP) have been met and the extent to which response mechanisms of the Humanitarian Programme Cycle and Transformative Agenda have supported the response.The evaluation considers the overall inter-agency response within the scope of the coordination of the Humanitarian Country Team, and focuses on the collective results and learning. It does not evaluate the government response nor is it intended to replace agency or sector- specific evaluations. 

The evaluation was comissioned by the IASC, conducted by Teresa Hanley, Rusty Binas, Julian Murray and Baltz Tribunalo from Valid International, and managed by Victoria Saiz-Omenaca from the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs with the support of the IAHE Philippines Management Group composed of FAO, UNICEF, and WFP. Following preliminary data gathering in July-August, a four-person evaluation team spent three weeks in the Philippines in August-September 2014 to undertake field work across the three regions covered by the SRP as well as in Manila.  Methods included systematic, inclusive community consultations, key informant interviews and group discussions. Three feedback and validation workshops in Tacloban and Manila with government representatives, humanitarian agencies, HCT and the IAHE in-country advisory group were important opportunities to refine emerging findings.Funding for the evaluation was provided by UN-OCHA, FAO, UNICEF, and WFP.
