Degree Name

MA in Sustainable Development

First Advisor

Amy Jerslid


As poverty, political fragility and environmental vulnerability drive conflicts and underlie disasters around the world, the humanitarian relief sector is growing. As humanitarian operations expand, strong M&E systems must guide the evolution of relief. This IPIC capstone was an inquiry into Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) tools and approaches recommended for each phase of the suddenonset emergency operation (EOps) program cycle of humanitarian relief. The research question was explored through a literature review of industry recommendations, which was bolstered by an overview of international humanitarian standards. The application of literature review findings were demonstrated through the development of a rapid needs assessment template for Lutheran World Relief (LWR).
