Evaluation of Sida’s Humanitarian Assistance

Sida commissioned this evaluation to examine its implementation of the goals and perspective in its humanitarian strategy from 2011-2014, identifying what is working well and challenges.

The evaluation concluded that Sida is a leading humanitarian donor, not only in terms of financial resources but also in implementing the Good Humanitarian Donorship principles and strengthening the humanitarian system. Sida’s high level of achievement has raised expectations amongst partners and its own staff of continued progress, despite resource constraints. In particular, Sida could consolidate gains made through different initiatives on crosscutting and thematic issues, basing its funding on objective criteria, and strengthening partnerships, for example by linking partner performance to funding decisions.
