The Joint Assistance Strategy for Zambia (JASZ), signed by 16 cooperating partners to manage their development cooperation with the Government of the Republic of Zambia, came into effect in 2007 and is set to expire in 2010. The overall aim of the evaluation, conducted by Danida, Sida and Irish Aid, is to provide an assessment of the JASZ – particularly the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the strategy – and to identify lessons learnt, best practices and recommendations to inform the aid management section of the Sixth National Development Plan and the design of the next JASZ. It is the hope that it will also contribute with valuable inputs into Phase II of the Joint Evaluation of the Paris Declaration.
