Evaluation of Humanitarian Action Training Workshop
Social Terrain will be hosting Europe’s next annual 3-day Evaluation of Humanitarian Action (EHA) training workshop given by the highly experienced evaluators and trainers Margie Buchanan-Smith and John Cosgrave. Margie and John are co-authors of the seminal Evaluation of Humanitarian Action Guide (ALNAP, 2016) – www.alnap.org/eha. The Guide will be the foundation for this training.
This will be the 10th year that John and Margie run this training workshop, which has received consistently positive feedback from participants. Over this time they have trained and mentored hundreds of humanitarian aid professionals. The trainings have proved invaluable for colleagues to learn, share their evaluation experiences, and to network.
The overall aim of the training workshop is to make evaluations more effective in contributing to the improved performance of humanitarian interventions and to enhance the quality of the evaluation process. This course is recommended for evaluators, managers and users of evaluations. Previous evaluation experience is not necessary, but some knowledge and experience of humanitarian action is required.
Margie is an experienced evaluator of humanitarian action, with UN agencies, NGOs and governments. She has led numerous evaluations, often in conflict environments, has managed and commissioned evaluations, and is regularly requested to act as a peer reviewer for humanitarian evaluations. Margie has 30 years’ experience of humanitarian action. She is a Senior Research Associate with the Humanitarian Policy Group at the Overseas Development Institute in London, and is a Visiting Fellow with the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University. She is an accomplished trainer and is also a qualified and experienced coach.
John is a multi-sector professional with broad experience of humanitarian action in over 65 countries and of training in over 30 counties. John served as the evaluation advisor and coordinator for the evaluation of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami (one of only two sector -wide humanitarian evaluations). John combines learning from nearly 40 years work with conceptual frameworks and solid evidence from research to deliver training that is firmly grounded in the realities of the humanitarian sector.
