The evaluation's objective is to determine to what extent the Swiss contribution to the ICRC HQ has realized the goals of the partnership and to develop forward-looking recommendations. The evaluation considers activities undertaken as part of the funding partnership from 2013 to 2016, as they relate to the ICRC HQ.
