2020 EO: Global Evaluation of UNICEF’s WASH Programming in Protracted Crises, 2014-19

Executive summary



This Global Evaluation of UNICEF’s WASH Programming in Protracted Crisis (WiPC) is the first UNICEF global thematic evaluation focusing specifically on protracted crisis contexts. This evaluation covers the period 2014-19 and provides both accountability for UNICEF’s performance and learning and practical solutions for how UNICEF can adapt its WASH programming and ways of working to evolving circumstances. 


The WASH needs in protracted crises, and subsequent UNICEF response, have increased considerably over the evaluation period. The evaluation explores the extent to which UNICEF has been able to meet corporate commitments for WiPC, whether tools and approaches designed largely for rapid onset emergencies have been effective, and whether UNICEF has been able to adapt and innovate programming. This includes a consideration of UNICEF’s experience in implementing linking humanitarian and development (LHD) for WiPC, and how well-placed the organization is to adapt working to fully achieve its ambitions for LHD in WiPC.
