Importance of Post-project Evaluation and its Implementation Method - GwB Project in Serbia and BiH

Publication Name

11th Congress of the Balkan Geophysical Society, BGS 2021


Heavy rain in May 2014 triggered thousands of landslides in Balkan region. In order to help in overcoming difficult situations, humanitarian expert project was performed by AGES and financially supported by SEG GwB. The project brought students, researchers and practitioners in Serbia and BiH together with experts - volunteers from seven other countries. They cooperated towards a common goal of geophysical surveys, data analysis and design of countermeasures for landslide disaster mitigation, overcoming the divisive history of wars, race, religion and culture. But, evaluation of geophysical surveys often accounts for the technical aspects alone, while social, economic and environmental evaluations are rarely discussed in professional societies. The importance of achieving the SDGs is increasing in all the social activities; geophysics is expected to deliver value to the world and that is why geophysical projects should be assessed in terms of social, economic and environmental impacts as in the SDGs. Among various methods of project evaluation, the Development Assistance Committee of Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD-DAC) proposed six evaluation items. These assessment criteria are tools for business evaluation from the perspective of sustainable humanitarian benefits and often involve volunteers across national borders and set standards based on international consensus.
