Key learning in disasters

Tearfund is collating key learning around our Quality Standards commitments in order to facilitate learning from our experiences and continual improvement. The transferrable learning is drawn from external project evaluation reports, field monitoring visits and debriefings with staff and partners, and the documents will be updated continually as new learning is captured. The learning is presented in the form of ‘specific actionable recommendations’ in the links below:
