Evaluation of disaster and emergency management: Do no harm, but do better

Authors


Abstract

The authors identify key issues for the improvement of evaluations of disaster and emergency management. The value of an interagency approach is discussed, as is the importance of the crossover lessons from international and domestic evaluation efforts. The authors discuss specific ways evaluation is tied to the larger context of guidelines and standards in humanitarian assistance. © Wiley Periodicals, Inc., and the American Evaluation Association.
