Global multidimensional poverty analysis 2020

This analysis of global multidimensional poverty has been prepared by Sida during autumn 2020 to support the in-depth reviews of global thematic strategies. After an extended period of declining global multidimensional poverty, the trend is reversing, reinforced by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The decline in resource poverty was already slowing before the pandemic, the consequences of which have combined with conflict and climate change to cause an increase in extreme poverty on a global scale for the first time in a generation. Worldwide, three out of four people living in extreme poverty live in fragile, often conflict-affected countries. A large proportion of them live in rural areas, are young and have low levels of education. More women than men live in extreme income poverty. Africa is the continent on which the largest percentage of the population live in extreme income poverty. While the educational levels among adults has risen, average life expectancy has increased and people are living longer, healthier lives, at the same time, the percentage of people living in food insecurity has increased. The number of armed conflicts is at a historic high and developments in human security are mostly going in the wrong direction. Between 2015 and 2018, for example, the percentage of people living in extreme poverty in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) doubled as a consequence of the wars in Syria and Yemen. Until recently, there was a positive trend in opportunities and choice.

Process evaluation of three donor agencies’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic in Bolivia during the period March–December 2020

This process evaluation concerns the response of three donor agencies (the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC), and the Global Affairs Canada (GAC)) to the COVID-19 pandemic in Bolivia. The evaluation assesses in a comparative manner how well the three agencies have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and lessons are drawn for future crises. Focus is on internal procedures within the agencies as well as on the reprogramming process. It is concluded that all three donor agencies have demonstrated a strong responsiveness towards project partners in Bolivia and that decentralised decision-making and adaptive capacity have been critical assets. It is recommended that more thorough assessments of headquarters’ “fit for fragility” preparedness are conducted, and that headquarters’ “duty of care” procedures are reviewed to address critical family issues and protection of national staff. Embassies are recommended to expand their virtual toolbox for communication and monitoring and to serve as a hub for exchange among partner’s during crises. More contextualised gender and vulnerability assessment tools should also be developed.

End of Programme Evaluation of Sida’s Support to The World Academy of Science (TWAS), 2017–2021

This report presents an end-of-term, forward-looking evaluation of Sida’s support to The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for the period 2017–2021. It is intended to inform future strategy and programming in TWAS and in the Sida-TWAS partnership. The evaluation concludes that good progress has been made – e.g. young researchers in STLC countries have been strengthened through research support, soft skills, networking and exposure to the value of science beyond academia. Still, the positive benefits – although many and solid – remain at the level of the individual rather than systems, and may not have sufficient long-term benefit or in-built sustainability. The evaluators recommend that Sida continues and even increases support to TWAS, but with higher expectations and increased joint action on more strategic, sustainable financing. The evaluators also urge TWAS to provide stronger leadership towards systems change in STLC and LDC countries, to focus on greater impact through longer-term strategic partnerships, to energise networks, strengthen policies on gender and the environment, and give young and Global South scientists more voice on international forums.

Water Resources and freshwater ecosystem management

Sida, along with other international development agencies, recognises the importance of being evidence- based in its policy and programming in order to ensure that development- and humanitarian interventions have maximum impact. Understanding what works in development programming is a core commitment in Sida’s Operational Plan (2020-23). This series of ‘Evidence mapping briefs’ on different thematic areas is one of a number of initiatives intended to help Sida policy specialists, managers and programme officers become more evidence-based in their work. Sida headquarters and field staff may be engaged in a range of tasks for which evidence is necessary – for example, contributing to the development of a bilateral, regional or thematic strategy, developing a programme, or appraising project proposals. To this end, the brief is developed as a versatile tool which can cater to their various needs.

End-of-projects evaluation of International Civil Society Centre’s 2018–2020 extension programmes:

The current evaluation considers of Sida’s support to two International Civil Society Centre’s (ICSC) 2018–2020 extension programmes: “Dynamic Accountability for a Resilient Civil Society” (2018-2019) and “Resilient Civil Society in Times of Scrutiny” (2019–2020). The extension projects follow from a previous Sida-supported Global Standard for Civil Society Organisation (CSO) Accountability Project – implemented by ICSC from 2015–2018 – but included a range of other activities and outputs designed to increase CSO resilience. The projects are assessed as relevant to both Sida’s strategies and policies for support to civil society and to the issues facing civil society globally, most notably the increasingly shrinking civic space. Most activities anticipated under the projects were successfully implemented and there are indications that they are contributing to anticipated outcomes, although some outputs have only recently been completed and their contribution to outcomes remains to be seen. Similarly, while the Global Standard is being increasingly referred to by the OECD and European Union (amongst others) that might potentially lead to impact, it is too soon for any real impact to be expected. Levels of sustainability of the Global Standard are increasing, but other ICSC activities remain dependent on Sida funding. While none of the activities and outputs under the two extension projects have a specific focus on gender equality and non-discrimination, the Global Standard has a commitment specifically focused on women’s rights and gender equality and ICSC is increasingly focusing on issues of inclusion.

Dialogue Support on Health, Environment and Climate Change

The health and well-being of humans, animals and ecosystems are closely interconnected. Cross-sectoral work is, thus, often necessary to obtain both healthy and sustainable solutions. This Dialogue Support serves as a practical tool that aims to engage, inspire, and identify entry points for professionals in the area of environment and climate change to improve programming and create conditions for cross-sectoral collaboration with the health sector. For a general understanding of environment, climate change and health linkages and Sida’s overall point of view, please see Sida’s brief “Health and Linkages to Climate Change and Environment”.

Evaluability Study of Sida’s Approach to Democratization in Different Contexts

//This report is part of a series of three reports. The others are: 2021:3 Mapping Approaches to Democratization Assessment and 2021:5 Mapping of democratization support// This report presents the third output under the Evaluability Study of Sida’s Approach to Democratization in Different Contexts (see terms of reference (ToR) in Annex 1). Sida in May 2020 commissioned FCG and Tana Copenhagen in partnership with the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and D-Arch to undertake a comprehensive evaluability study of Sida’s democratization support. Three distinct outputs form the combined evaluability study: (i) a mapping of research and donor approaches to democratization providing learning of how democratization can be approached, (ii) a mapping of research and donors’ approaches to assessing the status and progress of democratization providing learning for such assessments and (iii) a feasibility study of evaluating Sida’s democratization support.

Mapping Approaches to Democratization Assessment

//This report is part of a series of three reports. The others are: 2021:4 Evaluability Study of Sida’s Approach to Democratization in Different Contexts and 2021:5 Mapping of democratization support// This report presents the findings from the second mapping exercise that researches how researchers and international donors assess democratization, and donor efforts to support and promote it. A conventional definition of democracy was preferred in this report. The research focused on methodologies themselves, both qualitative and quantitative, rather than on findings and analyses. The report reveals that qualitative evaluation continues to be the principal methodology for donors and a prominent one for researchers, and therefore recommends that underutilised political economy analysis should be expanded. Quantitative evaluation methodology has expanded greatly in recent decades, using ever more advanced methods, and its future growth should be supported. However, evaluation methodology faces new challenges in assessing democratic backsliding but is rising to the task. Lastly, gender equality has become a top priority in democratization programmes and evaluation. Poverty has assumed a prominent but lower place and remains largely the province of the economic growth sector. Efforts to link these themes in democracy evaluations should be encouraged.
