Independent Review of Programme Criticality

July 2014

On behalf of the multi-agency Programme Criticality Steering Committee, Humanitarian Outcomes undertook this review to identify progress, strengths and weaknesses of the programme criticality (PC) methodology and framework. The report assesses the rollout of the PC framework, including the use of PC results at country level and whether PC contributes to the UN’s ability to ‘stay and deliver’; to identify external factors that might have influenced the implementation of programme criticality; and to provide actionable recommendations for a way forward, including on the sustainability and institutionalisation within the UN system.
