Description:
2017:1 Sida Studies in Evaluation / 2017:1. The purpose of this annual report is to provide an overview of evaluations commissioned and published by Sida (units and foreign embassies) in 2016 and to briefly present results from these 16 evaluations. The 16 decentralised evaluations represent a reduction compared to earlier years (for example 50 evaluations in 2015), which is due to the 10 month absence of a valid framework agreement for evaluation services. The majority of evaluations were programme evaluations and were carried out within 11 out of Sweden’s 43 results strategies. They covered seven of Sida’s twelve main sectors, and about one third were within the sector democracy, human rights and gender. One evaluation concerned a Swedish cooperation strategy. The evaluations are of direct use to Sida and partners for learning and to improve design and implementation. Brief summaries are provided for all evaluations. The total cost for Sida commissioned evaluations in 2016 was about 12 MSEK.2017:1.
