Sida Studies in Evaluation 04/02 / Sida commissioned the Swedish National Financial Management Authority to do the third assessment of quality and usefulness of Sida's Performance Analyses, which constitutes an input for orienting the revision of a Country Strategy for Swedish Development Co-operation. The report is written, based on a desk study, comprising ten different countries/regions. It concludes that many of the performance analyses have a level of description that is too detailed and should rather be written on a more overall level. The quality of the analyses varies and therefore the report recommends Sida to improve on methodological skills concerning results analyses.
