DCA Mine Action Evaluation – Field study in Libya

From November 16th 21st Tana did a field visit in Libya as the last part of an assignment with DanChurchAid for an external evaluation of the Humanitarian Mine Action. DCA Mine Action has been operational since 1999, working in countries such as Albania, Angola, Burundi, Burma, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Kosovo, Iraq, Laos, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Sudan and South Sudan. It includes stockpile destruction, risk education, training and development of government actors in the three countries. Tana will evaluate on the Mine Action programme in DR Congo, Lebanon and Libya, which is being implemented over a period of four years, between July 12 and July 16. The purpose of the evaluation is to measure the achievements of the project outcome in terms of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability. Based on the findings, Tana will give recommendations for the remaining two years of the project period and suggest strategies and improvements for similar projects in the future. The evaluation will be completed by the 13th of December.
