Evaluation of NPA’s approach in humanitarian assistance and relief based on cooperation with local partners
NPA aims to uphold a capacity to respond to crisis situations, and will always do so in cooperation with local partners. While the main focus of NPA over the last decade has been long-term cooperation, humanitarian assistance constitutes approximately 14 % of NPAs total international turnover. NPA’s involvement in humanitarian assistance and relief has had less focus than our long-term cooperation, and is in need of a process of more systematic organizational learning based on existing experience. We wish that this evaluation shall contribute to such organizational learning and to systematizing the NPA experience in humanitarian assistance. This is an internal report to NPA’s International Department on an evaluation of NPA’s experience in humanitarian assistance and relief based on cooperation with local partners. The main evaluation purpose was to assess the effectiveness of NPA and partners to provide humanitarian assistance and relief, in order to contribute to organisational learning and development.
