Summary: “Focusing primarily on the Helmand context, this paper will discuss the challenges to evaluation in environments of this nature including the dearth of baseline data available in a complex and fluctuating operating environment characterized by insecurity, hampered by fractured government systems and swayed by political imperatives. The paper will examine the role of evaluation in such contexts and provide practical examples of innovative approaches to evaluation including the application of geospatial mapping, methods for conducting primary research in insecure environments and the development of information management systems to assist practitioners in working collaboratively towards joint civilian-military assessments of progress against the campaign plan.”—(Abstract).
