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.

Performance Evaluation of Swedish Research Cooperation with Tanzania 2015 to 2022

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.

Evaluation of the Horn of Africa Resilience Initiative 2018 – 2021

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.

Evaluation of MADRE’s Action Plan for Enhancing Gender Rights in Crisis 2018-2021

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.

SRHR project evaluation of the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET)

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.

Evaluation of the Iraq Foundation Project

This report is the evaluation of a project implemented by Global Partners Governance (GPG) and Iraq Foundation (IF) from 10/2018 to 09/2021. The evaluation prioritised the evaluation criteria of relevance, effectiveness as well as sustainability. The methodology included both qualitative and quantitative data collection. The project brought some results, mostly at institutional level, through better analysis, understanding of some issues of concern for the population, increased competencies of the staff and politicians, development of new processes and increased interactions between different constituencies. This contributed to increase the legitimacy of the institutions and to raise the profile of female politicians whose experience is often limited. Participants interviewed are appreciative of the partnerships with IF and GPG and of the skills gained. However, the potential for results has not been fully reached yet. Political dynamics in the country will condition some of the progresses, and further advocacy is required to materialise potential legislative progresses. The report includes recommendations.

Midterm Evaluation of the Non-Governmental Gender Organisations Coordinating Council (NGOCC) in Zambia, Strategic Plan 2018–2022

NGOCC is the national umbrella organisation promoting women’s empowerment and gender equality in Zambia with more than 100 member organisations spread across the country. Sida has supported the organisation with core funding since 2018. The evaluation concludes that the issues addressed in the five pillars of NGOCC’s Strategic Plan continue to be relevant to the context of women and women rights organisations in Zambia. The implementation of the plan is progressing towards the achievement of intended outcomes but are challenged by a lack of continuity and consistency of efforts invested particularly through the basket fund sub-granting mechanism to member organisations, whose capacities remain broadly weak. NGOCC however has demonstrated strengthened institutional capacities. There is room for improvement for working more systematically towards building a stronger basis for the potential sustainability of results achieved so far with greater focus on programmatic consistency and continuity and a capacity development approach tailored to the broad and varied base of member organisations.

Evaluation of Enhanced Agricultural Productivity and Resilience to Climate Change through Solar Powered Irrigation in Zimbabwe

This is an evaluation of Enhanced Agricultural Productivity and Resilience to Climate Change through Solar Powered Irrigation Project (REAP), implemented by Practical Action from 2017 to 2021, with a no-cost extension to May 2022, with Sida being the sole donor. The objectives of the evaluation were to consider the effectiveness, impact and sustainability of the project. The evaluation concludes that implementation of REAP has triggered positive changes in crop yields leading to improved food security and enhanced incomes. Human capital has been strengthened to promote market linkages, access to finance improved thereby enabling small investments in other income generating projects. Enhanced institutional capacity enables better coordination and strategic direction of the irrigation schemes, and enhanced resilience to climate change. However, these changes are at an early stage and will require further nurturing. The evaluation makes recommendations for future Sida strategy on Environment and Climate Change, and recommendations aimed at enhancing the final stages of implementation and the future effectiveness, impact and sustainability of similar projects.

End of Project Evaluation of Building Coffee Farmers Alliances in Tanzania (CFAT 2013–2021)

This is an evaluation of “Building Coffee Farmer Alliances in Tanzania” (CFAT) project, supported by Sida in the period of 2013–2020. The project is implemented by Hanns R Neumann Stiftung (HRNS) in Tanzania. The purpose of the evaluation was to enable the Embassy of Sweden, HRNS and other coffee stakeholders to assess the progress and performance of the intervention and what can be improved. The OECD-DAC criteria of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability were assessed. The evaluation comes to generally positive conclusions: much of what was intended has been achieved, despite external challenges. Highlights include a clear progress in establishing primary and secondary level institutional infrastructure, strong evidence of improved incomes, increased coffee production and quality, some progress in introducing improved agricultural practices, improved household resilience and a successful pilot project in gender and entrepreneurial development of youth. The evaluation provides recommendations on sustainability as well as on areas in coffee value chain for potential interventions, and operational recommendations to HRNS and the Embassy.
