Figure 1 The Importance of Attitude in Disaster Response Evaluations. Note. Disaster response evaluations can result in positive or negative conclusions. Figure 1 shows how quality aspects of the response can be connected to the attitude toward affected individuals or groups. The parabolic shape depicts the possible positions of a particular response that can be more or less passive or active and more or less positively reviewed. The vertical line in the middle marks the boundary between a passive and an active response. The horizontal line in the middle marks the point where positive evaluations (high quality, “good practice”) can be distinguished from negative evaluations (low quality, “bad practice”). Evaluation findings can roughly be categorised in four quadrants. Examples of possible evaluation results are given for each quadrant. Ideally, evaluations include perspectives of different stakeholders in the response, including the target groups, policy makers and service providers. Source: Adapted from Dückers & Thormar (2015).
