Soldier using binoculars

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation commissioned adelphi to evaluate FAST International, the early warning programme of Swisspeace.

The aims of the evaluation were threefold: first, it should give detailed insight into the current position and application of FAST International products by different user groups. Second, adelphi analysed the acceptance and performance of FAST International products and services. Third, recommendations were developed and information for more strategic decisions regarding the future development of FAST International were provided. Besides the analysis of relevant FAST documents, interviews, surveys, and discussions with FAST staff as well as donors ensured that the process of the evaluation was participative and transparent.
