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.
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.
Evaluation of support to the project Strengthening Sustainable Private and Decentralised Forestry (SSPDF) Phase 2
This evaluation looks at the relevance, performance and sustainability of the project Strengthening Sustainable Private and Decentralised Forestry. The evaluation found that the project has proven relevant and effective in working with a range of stakeholders to enhance livelihoods of forest communities, contribute to gender equality and support environmental sustainability. This is anchored in the project’s holistic approach that brings together women and men and supports constructive cooperation between forest communities and both local and national authorities. Most activities are still at a pilot stage. Initial outcomes are promising, but impact will only be achieved if current activities are scaled up. Furthermore, influence on government policies has been slow, and progress towards a more appropriate institutional environment will be required to achieve more widespread and sustainable impact. Finally, support to private forest owners’ associations has been effective thus far, but in the future more attention is needed to strengthening their business orientation and rethinking how they provide services if sustainability is to be achieved.
Ce rapport présente les résultats de l’évaluation du programme de Gouvernance Locale Démocratique (GLD) mis en oeuvre par un consortium de 4 Organisations Non-Gouvernementales (ONG) internationales (Diakonia, Suède ; Helvetas Swiss Intercoopération, Suisse ; SNV, Hollande ; Aide de l’Eglise Norvégienne, Norvège). Il montre que le GLD est un programme globalement pertinent, efficient et efficace. D’autre part, si l’évaluation permet de mettre en évidence des indicateurs de durabilité et de contribution à la réduction de la pauvreté, elle souligne également leur extrême fragilité.
information about its relevance, performance, and challenges, contribute to reflection and learning and provide recommendations for the future operations and serve as an input to its 2021–2025 strategy. Established in 1996, UTPC provides assistance to journalists and coordinates a network of 28 local press clubs. The evaluation found that the Strategic Plan was well in line with Sweden’s overall development cooperation strategy with Tanzania. UTPC can further enhance its relevance through a revision of its thematic training focus and support tailored to individual needs. Regarding its impact, the implementation of trainings helped enhance journalistic standards. However, existing materials should be updated, and participants’ usage of the skills and knowledge gained should be followed up. Also, Tanzania’s shrinking civic space undermined UTPC’s prospects of contributing to higher-level societal changes and freedom of expression. Sustainability aspects need to be strengthened as UTPC’s work is not dependent on future programme implementation.
This report presents the evaluation of global core support by Sida to the International Legal Assistance Consortium, with the purposeof generating learning and accountability, supporting Sida’s decision making on new support, and providing input for ILAC in theelaboration of a new Strategic Plan. ILAC’s work is relevant to Sida’s various policies. ILAC has added value depending on the countryand context in which it operates. While gender issues are well-addressed, conflict and human rights approaches are insufficientlydeveloped. Its assessments are relevant instruments to help different stakeholders make progress in the rule of law, identify needs,and plan forward. ILAC’s visibility and engagement are insufficient to create a constant and diverse demand for its assessments,increase its influence and attract donors. Core funding should contribute to ILAC’s new Strategic Plan and ILAC should continue towork on defining its niche and positioning. ILAC will also benefit from bringing non-legal expertise to its assessments increasingrelevance to different stakeholders, including donors. In doing so, it needs to develop partnerships with relevant partner organisations.
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.
The current evaluation considers Sida’s portfolio of support to rule of law, access to justice and sexualand gender-based violence(SGBV) under the the Swedish Development Cooperation Strategy with Liberia (2016-2020) as well as providing recommendations forpossible new entry points to inform strategic decision-making for future interventions under the new Swedish DevelopmentCooperation Strategy with Liberia 2021-2025. Sida support is adjudged to have been relevant under the 2016-2020 Strategy at thestart of the evaluation period (2016) and to have remained relevant over time. There is a high level of internal coherence within theportfolio and with support provided by other development partners, and some level of coherence with other members of TeamSweden, although not necessarily maximised. Most programming has been activity-based, but there is evidence that it is leading tooutcomes, particularly when it comes to civil society support to public education and increased access to legal aid and access tojustice in the traditional justice system. Programmes falling under the portfolio have been designed and implemented in a conflictsensitive manner and gender is included, particularly with the focus on SGBV. There are some positive signs that public education andawareness has led to better understanding of the law and human rights, that access to justice and legal assistance is increasing, andthat capacity has been supported and built amongst state justice institutions, but results in creating conditions for sustainable accessto justice and entrenched commitments to rule of law within public institutions remain weak in important respects.
The Tanzania Human Rights Defenders Coalition (THRDC) is a non-governmental membership organisation that seeks to protectand promote the rights of human rights defenders in Tanzania. This is a mid-term review of the implementation of THRDC’sStrategic Plan currently running from 2018 to 2022, the purpose of which was to determine the effectiveness, relevance, andpotential sustainability of the intervention, as well as to provide input to the preparation of the second half of the existing strategicplan. The Strategic Plan was geared towards taking the THRDC through a stage of expansion and increased service delivery. Thisstarted well but recent contextual changes have materially affected THRDC’s ability to implement both the internal change it hadinitiated and its planned activities. The strategic focus of THRDC is still relevant as it responds to the needs of its beneficiaries,members, and other stakeholders. THRDC is recommended to revisit its strategy elaborating alternatives based on three scenariosof context remaining unchanged, gradually improves and worsens.
The Strategy for Support via Swedish Civil Society Organisations 2016-2022 aims to foster a vibrant and pluralistic civil society indeveloping countries. The purpose and intended use of the evaluation is to provide an evidence base for Sida’s in-depth report for theCSO-strategy to be submitted to the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Evaluation questions derived from the M&E framework forthe evaluation. The data shows that SPOs have become less dependent on Sida funding. It also indicates that ASOs have increasedtheir dependence on Sida funding. The M&E framework requires CIVSAM to collect result examples. While the evaluation hasidentified a range of such examples, it is clear that some SPOs and IAPs to a greater extent than others have been able to capture andreport on higher-level outcomes, and provide a clear link between these outcomes and their support. This calls for a closer linkbetween the contents of results reports and the M&E framework.CIVSAM should review the Sida guidelines for application and reporting from SPOs to emphasize contribution to higher-level results,and try to provide a clearer link between such results and the activities of specific POs.
