The evaluation assessed the performance of four multilateral partners including United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Help the U.S. Department of State understand the effectiveness of its partners and gain insights for future cooperation to support Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
The evaluation assessed the on-the-ground realities for IDPs’ access to services. It looked at the extent to which the multilateral partners achieved their intended results and used good practices in their programming. The evaluation also examined how reaching vulnerable populations was incorporated into program design and implementation.
The evaluation team (ET) conducted fieldwork in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Lviv, and within the government-controlled areas of Luhansk and Donetsk Oblasts. They used a mixed methods approach that included document review, site observations, key informant interviews, and group and individual interviews with beneficiaries. In total, the team visited four sites and collected data from 133 key informants (60 male, 73 female) and 363 beneficiaries (128 male, 235 female).
The team produced a global desk review of national and international laws and policies, program documents, and literature on good practices regarding the local integration of IDPs.
The team also designed monitoring checklists to support PRM Program Officers in writing and reviewing IDP integration-related proposals. The materials help PRM monitor efforts by government, multilateral organizations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to create conditions suitable for local integration of IDPs. This work also strengthens PRM’s engagement with host governments, multilaterals, and NGO partners on the local integration of IDPs.
