Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
The overall conclusion of the evaluation is that the support on the whole has been well targeted and in general had a favourable impact in the education sector, especially in primary education through support to classroom construction.
The support has been highly relevant in keeping with Zanzibar needs and priorities. Sida has had a central role in the planning and development of the Zanzibar Education Development Programme (ZEDP). However, there has been a greater focus on inputs rather than what will be achieved. More could also have been done to focus support on the poorest communities.More attention could have been paid earlier to the institutional enabling environment.
