An up-to-date collection of evaluation reports and other evaluative resources
Le portail des actions d'apprentissage et de responsabilisation à Haïti est disponible en français
The scale of the devastation caused by the Haiti earthquake in January 2010 has resulted in massive relief and recovery operations being undertaken by several ALNAP members.
This page provides a shared platform for a structured strategic overview of ongoing and planned learning and accountability efforts by agencies operating in Haiti. The site aims to encourage complementarity amongst agencies undertaking such work, through sharing of approaches, contacts, key resources and evaluation plans.
The Government of the Republic of Haiti have also launched the Haiti Reconstruction Platform
It is our hope that these complementary initiatives will contribute to more informed, coordinated efforts to assessing and improving performance in the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti Earthquake.
The ALNAP forum is also available for all ALNAP Full and Observer members, as an online space to share experiences, discussion and useful information about the ongoing efforts.
