More on the GICHD project
"Enhancing Evaluation Capacities"
GICHD has reached an agreement with The World Bank and Carleton University to include training on Evaluating Mine Action Programmes within IPDET for both 2005 and 2006. IPDET is held each year in Ottawa, and runs for four weeks starting in mid-June, including a two-week core module and a wide variety of specialised optional workshops over the final two weeks.
This optional workshop for mine action outlines the characteristics of the field that distinguish it from other development interventions and pose additional challenges for evaluators. The focus will be on evaluating mine action as it supports broader humanitarian, reconstruction, and development programmes, and not on the technical aspects of landmine survey and clearance, medical treatment for victims, etc.
