The Studies and Evaluations division are looking forward to starting work on two new projects. The first is a 2015-2020 external review of Malawi’s Private Sector Development Programme funded by DFID. The project will require periodic reviews and value for money assessments over a three year period, followed by an ex post evaluation two years after completion to review systemic changes brought about by the programme. Landell Mills will manage the project, with inputs from MarketShare Associates and Makana.
The second is a DANIDA funded study of lessons learned from implementing development cooperation in Afghanistan. The six-month project will involve desk-based research, field work and analysis to identify lessons from thirteen years of implementation, evaluation and learning. Findings will be translated into guidance to support and improve future programming.
