Real-Time Evaluation Report for the CRS Pakistan Response in the Swat Valley
CRS launched a response in September 2009 to support the return of at least 3,000 persons1 displaced from Swat Valley. CRS partnered with local organizations LASOONA and EPS to provide cash grants, vouchers for livelihood assets, and cash for work activities to restart livelihood activities for returnees and other vulnerable households. The response targeted 4 Union Councils (UCs) which were adequately secure and had a large proportion of returnees. The real time evaluation (RTE) was held during the week of October 26th 2009. The RTE findings are organized by the OECD/DAC evaluation criteria of appropriateness and relevance, effectiveness, coverage, coordination, and connectedness and sustainability.
