Reflecting Humanitarian Principles in Evaluation

Reflecting Humanitarian Principles in Evaluation - UNEG working paper 2016.pdf (1614 KB / English)


The Humanitarian Evaluation Interest Group (HEIG) was launched at the UNEG - Annual General meeting in March 2015 in recognition that the specificities of humanitarian evaluation merited further and focused attention by UNEG, especially in its normative work. In its first year, two areas of work were prioritized - the first, the subject of this report, being on evaluation of Humanitarian Principles; and the second on the nexus between humanitarian action and development.

This report was discussed at the UNEG Evaluation Practice Exchange Seminar (EPE) in April 2016. The HEIG is convened by WFP, and includes representatives of the offices of evaluation of the following agencies: FAO, OHCHR, OIOS, UNDP, UNFPA, UN-Habitat, UNHCR, UNICEF, UNFPA.
