This evaluation of Afrobarometer was commissioned by the Embassy of Sweden in Addis Ababa and undertaken by NIRAS during the period from November 2017 to February 2018. In addition to informing the design of the next phase of Swedish support to Afrobarometer (2018–2022), the evaluation also serves a broader learning process aimed at bolstering Afrobarometer’s future sustainability. The evaluation recommends that Sida proceeds with support to Afrobarometer largely as planned for the coming phase. Decentralisation, agility and flexibility have served Afrobarometer well, so reforms should ensure that these benefits are not lost, due to the need to adapt to the diversity of capacities, roles and structures of national partners.
