Research and Evaluation
AIDMI has conducted over 28 evaluations of disaster risk management in South and Southeast Asia. AIDMI has been a leader in developing the practice of independent and joint evaluations of humanitarian efforts in the region. In this emerging area, AIDMI has captured and shared insights into how joint evaluations can improve accountability, ownership and management in favour of the poor and affected community. Several key evaluations include those for the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide India, IFRC-DFID, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), UNIFEM, HIVOS, Government of India (GoI)-UNDP-EC, Oxfam UK, and the Tsunami Evaluation Coalition (TEC). The mission of AIDMI is to mainstream disaster risk reduction by turning disaster relief and rehabilitation into an opportunity for sustainable human security and poverty alleviation by supporting the poor and excluded.
