A joint evaluation is when different agencies work together to evaluate and review their response to an emergency. This helps agencies increase accountability and transparency, to learn from one another, and to coordinate future responses. Joint evaluations also provide a place where knowledge, resources and tools can be shared among peer agencies and long-term cooperative relationships between agencies can be built. The Guidelines for Conducting Joint Evaluations of Humanitarian Action provide a guide, a series of stories and a set of tools on how to conduct a joint evaluation.

These Guidelines were developed by The Emergency Capacity Building Project
