DRC has engaged Researchcare Africa to conduct third party Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) which are in support of the comprehensive evaluations of the SRC IDP voluntary return program in Jowhar and Balcad districts of Middle Shabelle region. The assignment covered a beneficiary population of 334 IDP voluntary return beneficiary returnees in Balcad and Jowhar in Middle Shabelle regions out of the 3000 target population.
The purpose of the third party monitoring was to conduct Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) for 2015 voluntary return beneficiaries in Middle Shebelle region. The PDM assessed the quantity, quality and usefulness of the non-food item, livelihoods inputs and cash distributed to the households. The study also sought other items preferred by the households other than distributed items for future intervention. Besides, assessment of whether there was diversion of the distributed items and cash intended for target beneficiaries was conducted.
