Ushahidi. What is Ushahidi? Ushahidi Haiti. Executive Summary of Preliminary Findings - Ushahidi Haiti Independent Evaluation. This summary highlights the multiple method evaluation of the Ushahidi Haiti implementation.
The evaluation assessment techniques included semi-structured interviews, internet surveys and document review/analysis of chat records, blogs and the database of mapped incidents. The UHP was implemented amidst a network of interrelated information initiatives. Preliminary findings in the initial phases of this evaluation have suggested that the scope of the study be expanded to include more work in the domain of the Mission 4636 activity as the Diaspora mobilized and leveraged by the 4636-UHP interaction has probably played a significant role in the networked response. In order that the experiences and impact of this key group be appropriately assessed, a revised survey instrument has been developed is currently under institutional review. The final report will be delivered in Feb 2010.
