This field evaluation examines two DMI programs. First, the Relief and Rehabilitation Program for War Victims in the UN Camps and Community Preparedness for Reintegration in the Source Area, Juba, 2016-2018. This program began in 2014, and has been renewed and expanded every year. It is usually called the Relief, Rehabilitation and Reintegration Program (RRRP). Second, the food security program “Remove Hunger, Reduce Malnutrition, and Rebuild Resilience of Marginalized Families in 20 Villages around Juba, South Sudan, 2016-2021” is a BMZ-supported agricultural development project with some humanitarian activities.
The overall objective of the current evaluation report is to assess the challenges in planning, implementing and evaluating the IDP relief, rehabilitation, and reintegration program, as well as the food-security program, in order to determine what both can learn from each other. In addition, it looks at what DMI Juba and Caritas Gulu can learn from each other from both their humanitarian and developmental work. Although this evaluation also discusses the preliminary results of both programs, it focuses mainly on organizational processes at DMI.
Both programs are part of a larger set of DMI programs that, for instance, also include education and fighting GBV. IDPs, source communities, church organizations, and other local and international organizations highly value DMI in terms of management, relevance, and the impact of its activities.
