"Equitable Evaluations of Disaster Recovery Programs"

As the humanitarian relief and development arm of the United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) implements relief, recovery, and development projects in 48 countries globally, with significant funding designated for disasters within the US and its territories. Dr. Maureen Kperogi will critically examine evaluations in various FEMA-declared disasters that UMCOR funded. Discussions will center on the importance of (1) the equitable access to resources that vulnerable populations need, (2) strategies for weaving evaluation into the creation of programs and other organizational initiatives, and (3) strategies to promote equitable participation in the evaluation process.
