This report presents the findings, conclusions, lessons learned and recommendations from a midterm evaluation of the Agricultural Sector Development Support Programme II (ASDSP II), a five year programme supported by the Government of Sweden and European Union implemented in all 47 counties and at the national level in Kenya. Data collection consisted of field visits to 8 counties, coupled with interviews at the national level. The major theme of the evaluation is that the programme has a solid basis for its implementation, but has experienced significant delays. The programme is aligned and complementary to other initiatives in the sector and has demonstrated an acceptable level of effectiveness in the implementation of activities, but due to delays, a judgement on the achievement of outcomes, impact and sustainability is not possible. In terms of cross-cutting issues, the programme is designed and implemented in a gender sensitive way, there are efforts at engaging youth and vulnerable groups, and climate resilience has been factored into the selection of value-chains. The evaluation recommends a no-cost extension, along with other changes to improve implementation.
