Description:
2017:10 Sida Decentralised Evaluation / 2017:10. The Swedish Embassy in Kyiv contracted NIRAS Indevelop to conduct an evaluation of Phase 3 of the Sida and EU-funded “Sector Competitiveness Strategy for Ukraine” project implemented by the OECD. Phase 3 took place during a particularly challenging time, with the 2013-14 Maidan revolution and the conflict with Russia in 2014-15 having both negative and positive effects on the project objectives. A new government meant that new high-level contacts had to be cultivated and convinced to join the project, the working groups rebuilt and work plans revised to fit new priorities.2017:10.
