Mid-term evaluation of France’s humanitarian strategy
The humanitarian strategy was drawn up in 2012 in consultation with representatives of NGOs and partners of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and a mid-term review was planned for 2014. Groupe URD has been carrying out this review since November 2014. It aims to analyse the implementation methods, the operational logic and potential blockages which might hinder the achievement of objectives.
Taking into account how contexts and humanitarian crises have evolved, it will highlight the financial, geographical and sector-based decisions that were made when the strategy was adopted in order to put the priorities which were initially established in perspective. It will identify the potential shortcomings of this strategy and ways to improve its implementation in relation to the way contexts have evolved, the nature of crises and the types of partnership which have been put in place. It will also propose some areas for reflection to reinforce its implementation and consider ways in which the strategy could be adapted at the end of its term in 2017.
