Evaluation of PreventionWeb and related UNISDR information services for disaster risk reduction, final report

This report presents the findings on the effectiveness and impact of PreventionWeb (PW) and other UNISDR information services, and their ability to meet current and evolving information needs of existing and new disaster risk reduction (DRR) stakeholders, of the external evaluation undertaken by ITAD.

The evaluation and corresponding report aim to answer the following key questions: Is PW reaching the right people? Is PW meeting their needs? Is PW providing the optimum user experience? What impact is PW having? How effective and efficient is the management of PW?

The executive summary outlines the overarching recommendation for PW to take the first steps as a 'knowledge broker' by developing a clear and simple 5-year knowledge brokering strategy, based on an explicit theory of change, and taking into account PW’s niche and goal within the DRR domain.

A final chapter on PreventionWeb in the Future summarizes the evaluation findings, conclusions and recommendations.

The Evaluation of PreventionWeb and related UNISDR Information Services for Disaster Risk Reduction Final Report was commissioned by UNISDR and prepared by ITAD Ltd., United Kingdom.
