Evaluation of Africa Democracy Strengthening Programme IV, Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa, EISA, 2019–2022

This evaluation considers the Sida supported Africa Democracy Strengthening Programme IV (ADS IV) (2019–2022) implemented by the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA). ADS IV was relevant at design stage and it has remained so over the course of the programme. ADS IV complements numerous other EISA projects and programmes, including two supported by Sida (Somalia and Mozambique). Activities have been seriously affected by COVID-19, which has delayed activities, which has undermined effectiveness and efficiency, but progress is improving. Impact at the highest level will take many years to achieve and changes would be difficult to attribute, but some direct impact is noted. ADS IV is compliant with Sida’s human rights-based approach. It includes a specific focus on gender equality, but gender is not yet mainstreamed.

Evaluation of the OAG Zambia Strategic Plan/ Restructuring and Institutional Development Project (RIDP VI)

The evaluation assesses the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of Afrobarometer’s (AB) pan-African public opinion research programme across the network and its national and regional partners, to strengthen performance during the remainder of the current cycle and inform future strategic directions. Findings show that AB made significant progress towards planned results, responding to data needs, delivering outputs efficiently, and diversifying its resource base to consolidate AB’s institutional sustainability. Yet the final outcome - the use of AB data by policy makers in African contexts – is elusive. By rethinking the role of National Partners’, deepening relationships with regional partners, introducing Strategic Communications - including learningcentred methodologies to track cases of policy impact – into the network structure, and adopting an ‘experiment-learn-adapt’ for scalable innovation, the forthcoming Strategic Plan is likely to sustain gains made in the current cycle.

Mid-term evaluation of Indaba Agricultural Policy Research Institute (IAPRI) in Zambia

A mid-term evaluation of the Indaba Agricultural Policy Research Institute (IAPRI) was carried out, commissioned by the Embassy of Sweden in Lusaka. IAPRI provides evidence-based policy support and advice in the agricultural sector in Zambia, and receives financial support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). Current support covers the period 2018-2022 with a budget of 38 million SEK. The mission of IAPRI is to provide evidence-based policy solutions through high-quality research and outreach services for the transformation of Zambia’s agricultural sector to achieve sustainable broad-based pro-poor growth. The evaluation methodology consisted of interviews, focus group meetings, virtual processes and events for Forcefield analysis and Theory-of-Change discussions, engaging 49 individuals representing stakeholders from IAPRI, government, civil society and the private sector.

Evaluation of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), Core Support 2017–2021

This report presents an evaluation of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom’s (WILPF) Strategic Plan 2017-2021, to which Sida provides core support. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the progress made by WILPF towards achieving its set outcomes by using the evaluation criteria of relevance, effectiveness, impact and sustainability; contribute to learning and provide Sida and WILPF with input and recommendations regarding the upcoming phase of support and the elaboration of a new Strategic Plan. The evaluation found that the set objectives as well as the ToC remains relevant for the movement and has been functioning as a guiding framework in WILPF’s strategic work. WILFP has moreover strengthened its position and intervened effectively at a global, regional, and national level, as the movement’s voice has been increasingly recognised and respected. The evaluation also found that the grant support of Sida has been vital in the pursual and implementation of the Strategic Plan. It has also enabled WILF to combine being a grassroots-movement with having a global outreach. Sustainability, in terms of a diversified founding base, thus remains a challenge.

Evaluation of “Strengthening Associations of Municipalities and Cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina” Project

The Strengthening Associations of Municipalities and Cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina project (2017-2021) aims to strengthen the two associations ability to support their members’ rights. The project was jointly financed by the Governments of Sweden and Switzerland and implemented by SALAR/SKL International, the Association of Municipalities and Cities of Republika Srpska (RS AMC) and the Association of Municipalities and Cities of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH AMC). The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the project’s success, sustainability, and implementation of cross-cutting issues; contribute to learning and serve as an input to a potential continuation of the project. The evaluation found that the AMCs have increased their competencies in several key and prioritised thematic areas and are increasingly part of the national political dialogue and advocating for their members’ rights. They have however struggled to define, monitor and evaluate their strategies, not developed a plan to become more financially sustainable or been able to ensure that the implementation of the project has taken into account the cross-cutting issues.

Evaluation of the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (FSDT) Tanzania Strategy 2016–2020

This report presents a mid-term evaluation of the Strategic Plan 2016–2020 of the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (FSDT) Tanzania. The evaluation assesses the relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability of FSDT’s operations, and is expected to contribute to learning and serve as an input to FSDT’s next Strategic Plan. A light benchmarking was done with the Financial Sector Deepening Kenya (FSDK) and Access to Finance Rwanda (AFR). The evaluation found that FSDT’s Strategy has been largely relevant to national priorities and partners’ needs and that it has contributed to key policies and regulations, strengthened market infrastructure, and the development of new products and services. The needs of women and youth, however, have not been addressed properly, and more attention should be given to monitoring, learning, and ensuring value for money. It was moreover found that ensuring sustainability is a key challenge for FSDT, both in terms of programming and the viability of the FSDT itself. The evaluation ends with several recommendations to Sida, other donors and FSDT for the coming strategy period.

Evaluation of KCB and multi-party guarantees and assessment of prospects of guarantee projects in Kenya

This evaluation considers loan portfolio co-guarantees in Kenya, supported by Sida and USAID 2012-2021. The guarantees were provided to KCB and three Micro Finance Institutions targeting agriculture and clean energy. The evaluation looks back at effects of the guarantees and it provides lessons for future programming. Relevance and additionality of guarantees to move financial institutions more towards lending in agricultural value chains was varied. The use of the guarantees was sub-optimal, but improving over time. The guarantees were generally efficient. The most important effect is seen in improved and extended availability of tailored lending products and services to MSMEs in agriculture. Sida is recommended to: – Continue loan portfolio guarantees focusing on agricultural value chains in Kenya; – Link up with the initiative of the National Treasury to set up a national guarantee facility for SME lending (post Covid-19 recovery); – Include substantial TA in all guarantee arrangements; – Introduce competitive tendering for guarantee-provision to improve effectiveness of the instrument; – Build in a specific approach for impact analysis of loan provision in the guarantee arrangements.

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.

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.

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.
