Validation of a Framework to Measure the Sustainability of Ebola Programming in West Africa
*Recommended Audience: Experienced Professionals
The Ebola epidemic of 2014-16 ravaged Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone rendered systems immobilized at worst, and taxed at best. USAID has put considerable efforts to mitigate the second order impacts of the Ebola outbreak with the objective of recovering and strengthening existing institutions and infrastructures. IBTCI has developed an analytical framework to objectively measure the sustainability USAID’s investments and evaluate whether Pillar II Ebola efforts have accelerated development and resistance of local institutions and beneficiary populations. The purpose of this workshop is to validate the discrete components of this sustainability framework–its domains and the best indicators to measure them. Further the workshop respondents will debate the inter-relationships of these domains, assign weighting to each, and concur or reject the implicit assumptions in the model.
