Evaluation of aid from the French state to countries affected by the earthquake and tsunami of 26 December 2004
2005 - 2006
Over a period of two years, Groupe URD carried out an evaluation of the work of the Post-tsunami Interministerial Delegation (DIPT), which was set up by the French government in order to coordinate the aid delivered in different sectors following the Tsunami of December 2004.
Four Groupe URD evaluators looked at how French public and private funds destined for post-tsunami rehabilitation and reconstruction had been used in sectors such as health, shelter, water and sanitation and economic recovery. The evaluation was carried out in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India and involved all the relevant aid actors (local and international NGOs, institutional actors, United Nations agencies, etc.).
The evaluation analysed the relevance of this innovative mechanism and the quality of programmes that were funded through it, at different stages (shortly after the disaster, mid-term and at the closure of the projects).
