The main objective of this evaluation was to assess progress and effectiveness of Restless Development’s Strategic Plan (2016-2022), to identify challenges, lessons learned and provide recommendations for the future program period. The overall programming relevance is assessed to be high and effectiveness in Voice and Leadership and SRHR to be medium to high while the effectiveness of the living programme is considered low. The operational day-to-day efficiency is assessed as high, while the strategic efficiency is lower. The sustainability of capacity building effects is assessed be medium to high while sustainability of activities and of the organisation is consider low. The recommendation is to continue core funding of Restless Development for the coming strategy period and to, jointly with Restless Development, develop an exit strategy over a minimum of three years.
Evaluation of Sida’s support to the African Organisation of English-Speaking Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI-E)
This evaluation considers Sida support to the African Organisation of English-Speaking Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI-E) over 30 year-period (1991–2021), including to the predecessor organisation, Southern African Development Community Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (SADCOSAI) from 1991–2003. The evaluation focused on effectiveness, coherence, impact and sustainability and included seven case study countries. SADCOSAI/AFROSAI-E have collaborated with multiple partners over 30 years and although coordination between Sida and Embassies has been sub-optimal, coherence between AFROSAI-E and others has been exceptional. Sida’s support has increased the capacity of the AFROSAI-E Secretariat and AFROSAI-E has made progress towards its main expected outcomes. Difficulties in attributing impact to AFROSAI-E or Sida’s support aside, there is evidence that the support is contributing to increased transparency and accountability in the use of public funds. Significant sustainability of benefits can be expected, but international standards change frequently and AFROSAI-E’s support will need to continue if Supreme Audit Institutions in the region are to adapt to changes.
This report presents an evaluation of Sida’s support to Albanian Women’s Empowerment Network (AWEN) from 2019 until March 2022. The objective of the evaluation was to assess AWEN’s intervention Protection and promotion of women rights in Albania by using the evaluation criteria of relevance, coherence, effectiveness, impact, efficiency, and sustainability, as well as “Other issues” focusing on poverty reduction, transparency, and accountability, and to provide recommendations as an input to upcoming discussions on future support to women rights defenders in Albania. The evaluation found that AWEN’s strategic approach overall remains relevant. It has been an active and influential advocacy actor concerning gender equality and has contributed to legal and other public policy changes in this area, in particular in relation to GBV. It has also contributed to strengthening the advocacy action of its members as well as of other civil society organisations concerned with women’s rights. AWEN has moreover expanded its geographic and thematic focus during the programme period. However, with the expansion follows a risk of diluting its resources and the expertise it has on issues of GBV.
Mid-Term Evaluation of the Transparency International Zambia (TI-Z) Strategic Plan 2018–2022 in Zambia
The evaluation found that the Strategic Plan has largely met its immediate outcomes with some achievements at the intermediate outcome level. Particular strengths were found in TI-Z’s facilitative support and partnerships brokering through the use of training, mentoring, and providing inputs that are aligned to government and community priorities. Another major achievement of TIZ has been to strengthen the citizen-state relationship and their capacity to engage on issues of mutual interest and benefit. Challenges were identified in relation to the extent to which government and its agencies are able to respond to corruption and citizen and private sector demands. Focusing on state-side support will be fundamental to the results of accountability and responsiveness, primarily because state agencies suffer issues of resourcing and capability that impedes their ability to respond.
The purpose of the evaluation was to evaluate progress and results of the SAP II implemented by Diakonia with focus on determination of effectiveness and efficiency; identification of key learnings and success stories. The evaluation team concluded that the program is a valuable and relevant investment with a strategic focus on human rights, gender, rights holders and environmental issues, as well as the capacity to adapt the program to changed circumstances. Learning is a bearing element in the program approach, and compilation of lessons learned has led to timely and pertinent program changes. The program approach is unique with solid evidence of coherence and synergy among partner organizations, as well as with different stakeholders. In terms of effectiveness, there is evidence for implementation of activities on the ground, but limited evidence on how this is linked to national level advocacy. The efficiency was difficult to assess due to unforeseen break of momentum in implementation during 2020-2021. The grant management approach appeared solid and well-structured, albeit human resources constraints at the country office. The report contains recommendations.
The evaluation assessed the results achieved by Sweden’s support to three university-based partnerships and to Tanzanian Commission for Science and Technology. Evaluation confirmed the Relevance of support, which responds well to the identified needs of Tanzanian universities the economy. The Effectiveness of results achieved was generally positively assessed, although variation in achievements was recorded across the 31 sub-programmes. Impact is not monitored effectively by the programmes, which hinders assessment of this aspect. Evaluation identified two pathways towards achieving long-term positive change affecting the poor: the longer pathway involving the production of research, publication of results, integration of results in policy and practice. The shorter pathway involves targeted outreach and user engagement activities that address specific needs of communities, during the conduct of research. Sustainability is most visible in the integration of research support systems within institutions, but weakest in terms of financial sustainability. The report presents 8 recommendations aimed at strengthening the programmatic basis of the support and extending system-wide effects.
The Horn of Africa Resilience Initiative is a programme of 18 projects implemented under the IGAD Drought, Disaster and Resilience Sustainability Initiative between 2018 and 2021. This evaluation found actions were relevant to building resilience, particularly those that built the capacity of individuals and community assets. Gender equality guided programming in all projects. Projects were aligned to relevant policies, and Sida’s strategy. Sida performed monitoring visits, guidance, and granted extensions to mitigate COVID-19 delays. Available evidence indicates improved resilience and government capacity. The IGAD coordination platform achieved between 80 and 90 percent of its targets. Some projects achieved transformative change gender relations, natural resource management and government capacity. Sustainability occurred where there was participation of government, and skills transfer to households. Recommendations include development of a unifying Theory of Change and Results Matrix; ensuring indicators are aligned with the IDDRSI CCPs and that projects have the ability to collect necessary data; and Sida adopting elements of CPPs to guide its own resilience programming.
Evaluation of the Swedish Intellectual Property Office (PRV) International Training Programme (ITP) on Intellectual Property for Development (2015 – 2022)
This evaluation considers the International Training Programme (ITP) on Intellectual Property for Development, implemented by the Swedish Intellectual Property Office (PRV). It is supported by Sida. The evaluation focuses on the implementation period 2015 until 2021. It seeks to provide valuable input for any new capacity development undertakings in the area of innovation and intellectual property. The ITPs on Intellectual Property (IP) are very much appreciated by ex-participants and their organisations. The ITPs are a product of a strong partnership and long-term cooperation between PRV and WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation). Sida and PRV are recommended to: 1. Invest time to design and develop a new phase of ITPs on IP with an increased focus on organisational and institutional capacity development. 2. Discuss and set clear parameters for the design and preparation of a possible new round of ITPs on IP. 3. Review its partnership with its current implementing partners, and based on this review, decide if and how to cooperate in a future ITP programme. 4. Develop an approach and instruments to establish a network of ex-alumnae of its ITP courses.
This report presents an evaluation of MADRE and its Action Plan for Enhancing Gender Rights in Crisis 2018-2021, to which Sida provides core support. The purpose of the evaluation was to examine the relevance, coherence, impact and lessons learned from its implementation, as well as to assess its effectiveness in achieving results, in order to provide input to the decision making of MADRE’s strategic planning as well as Sida’s decision on continued support. The evaluation further focused on two countries that have a long-standing partnership with MADRE: Colombia and Iraq. The evaluation found that MADRE’s work is relevant to both Sida’s priorities, their partners, and MADRE’s own goals of peacebuilding and achieving social change, and that it has contributed both directly and indirectly to increased support of women and LGTBI survivors of violence. The Strategic Plan could however be strengthened by making the interlinkages among their strategies stronger. Moreover, the evaluators recommend MADRE to further develop their partner strategy, as well as to strengthen their current M&E system and to provide training on said system to the countries where they work.
The evaluation assessed the relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, coordination and sustainability of FEMNET’s project Advancing African Women’s Human Rights to their Bodily Autonomy and Integrity through ensuring that African Governments fulfil their Obligations & Commitments on SRHR 2017-2021. The project was supported by Sweden’s regional SRHR strategy for Sub Saharan Africa and included regional advocacy work and project in six African countries focusing on safe and legal abortion, ending of child marriage and ban of FGM. The project was assessed as relevant with FEMNET’s and Sida’s strategic priorities on SRHR, and with regional SRHR commitments. The project implementation did not fully respond to the project Theory of Change and the evaluation found that the links between regional advocacy and national accountability claims needed to be further strengthened. Among other things, FEMNET is recommended to strive for a more stringent thematic focus on SRHR to allow a more comprehensive monitoring of the effects of the advocacy work both at regional and national levels and continue to support members’ capacity to monitor the domestication of regional policy commitments.
