AN INTERNATIONAL team will assess the interventions of foreign non-government organizations in local government units in northern Cebu, which were hit by typhoon Yolanda.

Capitol consultant for rehabilitation and recovery Carmel Ulanday said that the Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluation (IAHE) team will be in Cebu for three days, not only to assess the implementation of international humanitarian aid programs, but also to capture best practices.

Ulanday and the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office met the IAHE team yesterday.

The group has been to other Yolanda-hit areas in the Visayas.

Ulanday said that because of limited time, the IAHE team can only visit Bantayan, Santa Fe and Daanbantayan.

She said the three towns were chosen because they were worse hit, have a high poverty incidence and received inter-agency assistance after Yolanda.

“It is for us to have lessons learned. It is really not to blame anybody,” Ulanday said.

Yolanda affected 15 towns and one city in northern Cebu when it made landfall in the area last Nov. 8.
