Landell Mills leads framework consortium for evaluation and impact assessment of the European Commission’s humanitarian aid and civil protection activities

Landell Mills is a consortium leader for the multiple framework contract for services related to evaluation and impact assessment of the European Commission’s humanitarian aid and civil protection activities for the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO).

Our highly competent consortium is made up of: Universalia (Canada), International Alert (UK), Femconsult (the Netherlands) and the American Institutes for Research (USA). The evaluations and impact assessments that come through this framework are complex in nature and cover a geographic region, country, or a horizontal thematic area, such as health projects, of DG ECHO’s activities.

Our consortium is currently implementing two evaluations, the first is the evaluation of DG ECHO-funded interventions relating to transport and logistics from 2013 to 2017. It includes interventions being delivered directly by DG ECHO itself, or via its humanitarian partners, participating states or by other organisations who are receiving support from DG ECHO. These include organisations such as the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS), Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Our partner Universalia is leading the second evaluation; the independent evaluation of the European Union’s humanitarian response to the refugee crisis in Turkey during the period of 2016 to 2017. This evaluation will cover all humanitarian aid actions under the EU Facility for Refugees in Turkey, including those that are ongoing. The results will be used to inform future programming and funding. The evaluation is set to be completed in March 2019 when the final report will become publically available.
