dc.description.abstract<p>The Multi-donor Voluntary Trust Fund on Tsunami Early Warning Arrangements in the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia was established by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in 2005, following the destructive Indian Ocean tsunami that occurred in December 2004. The Fund is administered by ESCAP and covers ESCAP member countries of the Indian Ocean and South-East Asia. As of December 2007 the Fund had received contributions of approximately USD12.5 million and has provided USD5.5 million in programme funding for activities carried out by five organizations.&nbsp;</p> <p>In December 2007, the Fund's Advisory Council adopted a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Framework that provides for an annual evaluation of the Fund as well as monitoring and evaluation of the specific projects it supports. This Evaluative Review, commissioned by ESCAP in March 2008, is the first annual evaluation of the Fund. Its primary focus is to examine the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability of the Fund, with the aim of improving the quality of the Fund&rsquo;s future work.</p> <p>The Review was conducted in accordance with the Review Terms of Reference (ToR) by a consultant engaged by ESCAP. It consisted predominantly of an independent desk review and a questionnaire survey, together with interviews in Bangkok with selected stakeholders in the Fund (in particular, donors and national governments). The questionnaire was sent to ESCAP members and OECD DAC members with representation in Bangkok and was used as the general structure for the stakeholder interviews. The findings of the Review, documented in this Evaluative Review 2008 Report, will be used by ESCAP to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Fund.&nbsp;</p> <p>The scope of the Review, as specified in the ToR, consisted of five main components; (1) development of a review work plan and indicators; (2) development and dissemination of a stakeholder questionnaire; (3) consultation with stakeholders; (4) an independent evaluative review; and (5) development of targets and indicators for a comprehensive review of the Fund to be carried out in 2009. The methodology adopted for the Review, therefore, was to address each component independently and simultaneously, and to draw the findings of the components together in the Conclusions and Recommendations of the Review Report. This strategy also recognised that each component might require a different approach to achieve its contribution to the overarching objective of the Review.</p>
