Abstract:

In July to October 2014 TRAC conducted a technical review of the Humanitarian Assistance in Syria Analysis conducted at TRAC-WSMR in support of CENTCOM Forward-Jordon CF-J in 2104 to inform and support analysis on Humanitarian Assistance HA related decisions to improving conditions in southern Syria. TRAC provided an assessment framework to CF-J that included measures and data sources to identify the basic needs, match those needs with appropriate type and quantity of HA, and assess effectiveness after HA has been delivered to refine coordination. TRAC delivered two sets of products to CF-J and these are the subject of this review. The review produced 17 specific observations. No substantial weakness was found in the technical products produced for this project and several areas for sustaining the technical merit of the analysis were identified. This review prototyped the emerging TRAC Technical Review Process to be implemented in FY15.
