RRI assists international organizations in monitoring and evaluating their ongoing or intended projects through local surveys and feasibility studies.

Monitoring and evaluation in relief and reconstruction projects is crucial in order to ensure that the great human and financial resources invested in local projects, are efficient and target-oriented.

In a challenging environment like Iraq it is extremely important to gather information. This allows to take the right management decisions and to adjust and improve the project implementation. The main goal of RRI’s current monitoring activities is to provide early indicators of (potential) problems or to suggest changes in the project design in order to achieve the project objectives. These activities provide project control measures and constant improvements. Monitoring and evaluation activities aim to answer the following questions Have the goals of the project been achieved? Have the goals reached the targeted groups?

Are the intended results in line with the project environment?

RRI evaluation activities focus on relevance, performance and issues requiring decisions and actions.

They provide early signs of potential impact, sustainability of results and recommendations for follow-up activities, in a second phase of the project.

The aim of any evaluation is to systematically compare project impacts on site with the target impacts expected at the time of the project appraisal.

Surveys and feasibility studies of certain regions and intended projects contribute to achieve best possible project results.

RIRP has successfully completed multiple evaluations and surveys in Iraq from 2004 – 2014.
