PHT Performance Review Survey Results
A five-year performance review of the PHT (2008 -2012) was undertaken in late 2012 / early 2013. As part of this review, an online survey was distributed to PHT stakeholders via the OCHA Pacific email distribution list in November 2012.
The survey consisted of 20 questions, including 17 closed and 3 open-ended questions, which were designed to model the evaluation criteria (relevance/appropriateness, effectiveness and connectedness) and the key areas to be assessed as part of the review (accountability and leadership, cross-cutting issues, effectiveness and timeliness of emergency response, information management, inter-cluster coordination, monitoring and evaluation, national engagement, partnerships and training needs).
In total, the online survey elicited 46 responses, of which 30 per cent were female and 70 per cent were male. Survey responses were recorded from countries including Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji, Japan, Nauru, New Zealand, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
Answers to the open-ended questions have been withheld to respect the anonymity of survey respondents.
