Evaluation of the Macroeconomic and Financial Management Institute of Eastern and Southern Africa (MEFMI) Phase IV Programme - Evaluation Report
Sida Decentralised Evaluations (Sida Review)
Bernt Andersson , Ann Bartholomew
This mid-term review was carried out between May and August 2015. The overall development goal of MEFMI is to improve macroeconomic and financial management and performance that supports economic growth and poverty reduction in its member states. The evaluation found that MEFMI had reached most of the targets for 2014 and is on track to reach its objectives by 2016. MEFMI has strong links to the client institutions in its member states. This helps MEFMI to stay relevant in relation to the needs and priorities of the client institutions and contributes to achieving the outcomes of the programme. The evaluation also found that MEFMI’s capacity building activities are highly valued by member countries; there is a strong sense of ownership by them and they are of the opinion that MEFMI Phase IV Programme conforms to their needs and priorities.
