Support to Internally Displaced Persons - Learning from Evaluations

In May 2003, representatives of four donor organisations, the Danish and Dutch Ministries of Foreign Affairs, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO), agreed to undertake a collaborative
evaluation process focussing on the theme of support to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The objective of the process was to ‘to draw out key, system-wide lessons and thereby improve the provision of humanitarian assistance and protection to IDPs in the future’. An informal grouping ‘the IDP Evaluation Group’ was formed to steer the process, chaired by the Head of the Evaluation Department of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. By the autumn of 2003 the initial grouping had expanded to also include representatives of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the UK Department for International Development (DFID), Development Cooperation Ireland (DCI), OCHA, UNHCR and WFP.
