9.1 Goal and objectives
A goal and objectives should be established for CARE’s overall response to the emergency. The goal and objectives should reflect CARE’s long-term intentions and niche role (see section 4.3).
Overall programme-level indicators should also be established to assist in monitoring and evaluating the overall effectiveness of CARE’s response.

The goal of CARE’s emergency recovery programme is to protect human life and basic means of living in the regions affected by the crisis. CARE uses a participative approach to restore both lost stocks and the local community’s capacity to cope with future crises.
CARE Bolivia response to floods
The goal of CARE’s emergency response strategy is to contribute to the immediate alleviation of suffering and losses caused by the disasters, recognising that disaster contributes to the creation and aggravation of poverty. CARE’s response will focus from the outset on not only emergency assistance, but also towards rehabilitation as a means of assisting disaster-affected communities to recover and move towards sustainable development. CARE will seek to mitigate situations that aggravate vulnerability and risk, and will assist families to protect and recover their livelihoods. CARE’s programme will assist a total of 23,400 people (3,900 families-800 families in San Julian, 400 families in Pando and 2,700 families in Potosi).
