Evaluation: Central Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami Programme

7 August 2020
Asia - Indonesia - Aid is being delivered after the earthquake and tsunami

Caritas aid workers on the ground in Indonesia have a wealth of experience responding to this type of disaster.

In September 2018, CAFOD - together with the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) - launched an emergency appeal in response to the Central Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami. Prior to this emergency, CAFOD did not have an on-going presence in Indonesia.

CAFOD’s response to the Central Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami (funded by a combination of funds from the DEC appeal, CAFOD appeal and other donors) is being implemented by three partners:

  • CRS (Catholic Relief Services)

  • KARINA (Caritas Indonesia)

  • Caritas Switzerland.

All three partners are members of Caritas Internationalis, a confederation of 165 Catholic relief, development and social service organisations operating in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.

Objectives of the final evaluation

  1. To objectively assess the effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, impact and sustainability of CAFOD’s Phase 1 and 2 DEC-funded projects.

  2. To assess how CAFOD’s Phase 1 and 2 projects engaged the affected population and the application/adherence to commitments of the Core Humanitarian Standards and SPHERE standards.

  3. To identify examples of good practices, challenges, lessons learned and critical gaps in the project implementation with the focus of providing recommendations for programme quality improvement in future projects, as well as for general organisational learning.

  4. To reflect on CAFOD’s wider programme and portfolio for this emergency in terms of the complementarity of projects and partners as well as CAFOD’s role and added value in the response.

  5. To identify specific lessons for CAFOD’s future work with partners in large-scale rapid onset emergencies.
