CARE contracted a four-person GEG team to conduct an internal evaluation of their Rapid Response Team (RRT) mechanism from May –July 2016. The purpose of the work was to review the perceived performance of the RRT, the extent to which the RRT was supporting the goals of the CARE International Humanitarian Strategy, whether further investment should be prioritized and to recommend ways forward to maximize the impact of the RRT in CARE’s response work. GEG conducted primary and secondary data collection that involved approximately 30 documents and more than 23 key informant stakeholders for this review. Data was analyzed so that findings, conclusions and recommendations could be identified.
