Is there a formal IASC mechanism to evaluate a humanitarian response?

Yes. An Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluation (IAHE) occurs within months 9-12 of a L3 declaration and for non-L3s at the specific request of the HC/HCT or other primary stakeholders.[1]

An inter-agency humanitarian evaluation is an independent assessment of results of the collective humanitarian response by member organizations of the IASC to a specific crisis. IAHEs evaluate the extent to which planned collective results have been achieved and how humanitarian reform efforts have contributed to that achievement.

For more information please see the IAHE guidelines.

The IAHE does not replace an individual agency’s own evaluation of their response to a crisis. Additionally, research and advocacy institutions may send evaluation teams looking at a specific issue.
