Nordeco undertook, on behalf of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs a review of the major Danish NGO, DanChurchAid.
The review concerned the performance of the organisation at head office level as well as in the field in terms of delivering results through partnerships in humanitarian action, mine action and civil society collaboration. In addition a general assessment of DCA’s current financial and organisational capacity to operate humanitarian and development programmes. Among the key themes looked at were partnerships, linking relief, recovery and development (LRRD), advocacy and application of the human rights-based approaches, and cross-border support to refuges in Myanmar. In addition the review concerned documentation of results and considerations on measuring efficiency and effectiveness.
The review was undertaken at DCA headquarters in Copenhagen, as well as through field visits in Cambodia, Myanmar and the Myanmar border area in Thailand.
