The UNISDR PreventionWeb platform provides information and resources to disaster risk reduction professionals and communities looking to improve their resilience against natural and human-made disasters.
Working with M&E specialists, ITAD, we conducted a wide-ranging evaluation of PreventionWeb (PW). We sought to answer the following questions:
- Is PW reaching the right people?
- Is PW meeting their needs?
- Is PW providing the optimum user experience?
- What impact is PW having?
- How effective and efficient is the management of PW?
The main recommendation of the evaluation report was that PreventionWeb should look to become a knowledge broker, targeting particular stakeholder groups with learning products rather than just being a repository of information. This would involve a site redesign, moving from a library model to persona or action-centred navigation, which seeks to tailor pages, pathways and/or packages of content to particular user groups.
