IOM Evaluation of CERF-funded Interventions
Following the CERF Advisory Groups recommendations to the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General in December 2011, CERF continues to encourage independent evaluations and reviews of CERF-funded activities by recipient UN agencies and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), along the lines of the evaluation by the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of its use of CERF funds (2006-2009).
At a meeting with the CERF Secretariat in December 2011, IOM agreed to carry out an internal evaluation during 2012, under the overall responsibility of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of IOM. CERF funds have supported a highly diversified portfolio of projects within the field of IOM humanitarian interventions and the evaluation is intended to provide a thematic, strategic and operational analysis of IOM’s use of CERF, examining the use of the Fund over the six year period between June 2006 and June 2012.
The evaluation aims to identify if, when and why CERF funding has played a critical role in ensuring that IOM could deliver its humanitarian interventions in rapid response, in under-funded emergencies and in its leading role for Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) for populations displaced by natural disasters, and IOM’s specific success criteria in accordance with the Organization’s mandate, in addition to CERF`s stated specific objectives and success criteria.
